So I like texture. But I'm not very good at it. To be honest, I pretty much gave up. Until Nichole Van sold this nifty texture + action set. And it wasn't too expensive. And I pretty much figured it would be my one last ditch effort at attempting texture.
Guess what? Nichole's set is simple enough that even a techie-challenged chickie like myself can use it successfully. And maybe, if I use it enough, and pay attention to the steps it has me walk through, I'll be able to try my own textures from scratch down the road. But for now, I'm happy with plug and play.
My last photoshoot with the W family provided me with images that were begging for texture. The sky was gray and somewhat void of cloud detail, which made the water gray, which all left me with a wide expanse of no-color-ness. Texture was just the ticket, methinks.
If you'd like to try your hand at some textures, I think Rita over at Coffee Shop has a wonderful texture tutorial.
