I Heart Faces: Texture



It's Monday, so it must be time once again for an "I Heart Faces" entry! This week's theme was "Texture". I have to admit that I groaned a little inside when I saw that. Because I know what "texture" means in this day and age of digital photography. Its the texture you digitally add to your photos using actions and presets in Photoshop. And because I'm still waiting for some nice person to volunteer to come over to my house to even show me what a damn layer even is, there is no way I'm entering a photo with the kind of texture they are talking about.

So, I thought about other ways I could bring real texture into my portrait. That's why I chose that particular background. And if you are wondering why Jayce is 99% of the time my subject of my I Heart Faces challenges, well... its because he's the only one around besides me on Monday Morning when I realize that I have yet to submit a photo :)

Don't forget to check out all the other hundreds of entries at I Heart Faces

  1. Wow!! Wonderful natural texture :D I'm new to the texture thing, too, and only taught myself how a layer works (at a veeerrry basic level) over Xmas break ;D Still working on it, but it's fun!!
    (if you don't get anyone to show you how it works, there are some excellent free tutorials for begginers, online...)

  2. I love the angle of view. I think natural textures are the best. :) He's so sweet.

    thanks for your compliment on my photo. I hate SP's of me. It's the first time I ever did a texture and I wanted to see how it worked out. My Flickr group liked it, so I wanted to see if the real world would like it.

  3. Hahaha, we have the same problem! I keep vowing that this year will be the year I learn Photoshop. :)

    Great picture --as usual! My entry used 'natural' texture, too, because I couldn't figure out how to add layers.
