A friend sent me an old photo and asked me if I could restore it. I decided to go one step further and used Topaz plugins, some textures and overlays to create an art piece vs a simple restoration. Here are the before and after:

I love textures

I was surfing Flickr recently and came across a photographer whose work fascinated me. She had a soft, feminine point of view and I loved her style. So I wrote to her and asked her how she achieved her look and she told me – Photoshop textures!

It turned out she also ran an e-store that sold her own original textures, so I checked them out and discovered a whole new realm. I am hooked. It involves layering textures over a photo, using layer masks to paint the texture on/off the photo and using clipping masks and adjustment layers to add effects. I have taken my Photoshop skills to a whole new level thanks to Leslie Nicole. See her textures and tutorials at www.frenchkisstextures.com.

Here is my first attempt at working with textures fpr portrait work with before and after images. Thanks to Leslie for the textures!
