Bringing you a taste of Mission Revival architecture – from where you least expect it. Not the Southwest or California but here in downtown Canton, Ohio.
The wonders of photo processing never cease to amaze me. With the photographic image as raw material, the possibilities are endless. Adding smartphone apps to my processing toolbox has increased those possibilities exponentially. I am the proverbial kid in the candy store, floating on a sugar high.
With this image, things come full circle – from smartphone back to Photoshop.
Texture Tuesday Processing
- Process image on smartphone, including straightening, cropping, tone and color adjustments, pencil sketch and light textures. Apps used: Photo Editor (Android) and PicsArt Photo Studio (iOS and Android).
- Transfer the completed mobile phone image to the PC and open in Photoshop
- Process my mid-tone contrast action to bring out the texture and details
- Add the Providence texture, blend mode = Linear Burn. Mask the building with a dark gray to lessen the impact of the texture on the drawing, allowing the texture to become the sky
- Add an overall levels adjustment to increase the contrast especially in the highlights
