I just love textures. Everytime I see a photo with a texture that just fits...I can't stop looking at it.
They add an extra dimension, photos take on a more classic, finished look. At least to my eye.
There are a few tricks to the process but I am getting the hang of it. I copied a couple tutorials off line and pretty soon I will have the process memorized. It takes about 5 minutes to do one photo, for me it is worth it.
This is one of Katie's photos. I like the shot before, but with the texture, I like it so much more.
