REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Texture Twist with a real twist

My choice for Kristy's Texture Twist is unlike most subjects I've seen lately.  I started with a photo I took of the horse ridden by a 'pickup man' at a local rodeo two years ago.  I have always loved gray horses, having ridden one of my younger sister's my first summer after high school.   Personally, I like the SOOC shot, but I opted to add some gray textures and a 'patina.'
I de-saturated the image and clicked 'colorize' to create a sepia look.  Then I added two gray textures at soft light and high opacity.  The final texture is called 'patina' with linear burn at 49% opacity.   The image has now become vintage.

I think I like the first look better as I love the color of the bridle. But the second one is a nicely done sepia image! How fun to use textures. My Kim Klassen class starts tomorrow and I am really looking forward to it!
