The Red Door
Welcome to another “Texture Tuesday“. Last weekend was a travel marathon – a road trip to Raleigh, North Carolina to visit my incredible son and his lovely girlfriend. And an opportunity to photograph new places.
During an artwalk in downtown Durham, I discovered this stunning red door/shutter combination. It called out for the addition of a texture to enhance its lovely decrepitude. Below is a peek at my Photoshop layers palette as well as the original shot prior to enhancements. For this image, I utilized the latest free texture graciously shared by Kim – a texture entitled “silence”. The image was also enhanced with a free Photoshop action from Pioneer Woman Photography called “Soft & Faded”.
So many of my images have been magically enhanced by the addition of textures and actions generously shared by artists such as Kim and Ree. My art is greater because of their benevolent creativity. Becoming a part of the online photographic community has challenged and inspired and stimulated my work. I am grateful to them and to you for coming along for the ride.
