I often get asked about the textures I use on images, so today I'll share!
The image above needed just a touch of something extra to give it a special look. Using layers in Photoshop, I added a texture from Tara Staton's "Soulful" texture pack. (I used texture #11 on this image.) After lowering the opacity, I then erased the texture from the model's skin.
The result is 'soulful'. :)

Okay, so these aren’t art-quality photos…but I have a point. There was a time when, if asked to take a couple pics of stuff to sell on Craigslist, I would snap a shot of each item and upload them directly to Craigslist. No more.
I had to laugh at myself, and I hope my husband was laughing too. He wanted a couple photos of a door he wants to sell, so we went out to the shaded carport (so we didn’t have harsh sunlight) and he held the door up. But wait – there’s going to be a hotspot on it from the sunlight coming through right there…move to my left a bit…a bit more…okay, turn it a bit…there! Okay, shoot. Wait…bad composition…shoot again. Oh – move the wagon…shoot again. Whew. Now the other side of the door…just a sec – there’s something on the door…okay, it’s clean…shoot – oops, I clipped the corner…shoot again…one more shot just to be sure. Whew again!
If that’s not enough to drive my husband crazy, before I can send them to him for Craigslist I must edit! Adjust levels, sharpen for web, crop out the distractions…okay, I’ll let him post these, but I’ll still call them “snapshots!”
I’m such a dork!

I came across this project today and may have to try it soon!
I borrowed the image from their DIY Guide to show you how cute it is! They have lots of other great projects and design ideas. And a book out "Show Me How: 500 Things You Should Know Instructions for Life From the Everyday to the Exotic" that looks like an awesome resource.
Really cute camera straps, wrist straps, lens bags, even guitar straps and lanyards. You can even get them custom embroidered with your studio name for a great price "Embroidery is $8 for up to 10 characters, $12 for 10-20 characters and $16 for 20-30 characters." Use code MPIX15 for 15% off at checkout.

I'm wanting to do several photo series.
I just have no idea of what.
Trees and flowers are out as they started blooming last week already.
And tomorrow the grass will already need to be cut.
It's definitely spring here in Southern Indiana.
I love how professional they look! I will soon be doing a give-a-way with one of these straps as the prize! (keep checking my blog for more details)
