Before and After- Textures

12 Jan

Working with different textures and layers.. here’s another ‘before and after’ example.
There are several layers. The first is photo shop curves, I added green and blue tones to the top edges and a warm gold below.
Second, I layered a photo of an open book on the setting ‘overlay’ on full opacity. Next I added a texture layer.

Here is a second example that is similar.  I took the original photo and added a texture layer on the setting ‘darken’. Then added the same open book photo as a new layer but making it black and white and on the setting ‘hard light’. Next I added a layer of curves to add depth to the three dark corners and fade the green hue a bit making it more mysterious.
