of Project 52
Inspired by a set of vintage summer photos from a professional photographer's blog, I tried to create my own version using photos from past projects, added texture and Photoshop actions. The result - soft, dreamy, vintage shots...
Here are the "before" photos -
I added some textural elements (with a fill layer of teal over linen texture). Here's our quick tutorial on how to add texture.
Using our standard linen texture photo, I added a fill layer (solid color) in a nice teal blue shade. I then flattened the image and created a duplicate layer.
I dragged the duplicate onto the flower photo and adjusted the opacity to about 40% on overlay mode. I flattened the image, used a little Photoshop action (soft & faded from PWactions), and adjusted opacity to about 35%.
I also added my monogram onto the photo for effect. Here's a quick tutorial on adding text to your pictures.
Here are the "after" photos -
Awesome reminders of spring and summer as we welcome the cooler months.
Happy weekend, folks!
