Ladybug ladybug fly away home..... (34/365)

I'm just learning how to use photo editing software and so far I'm really enjoying it. It's fun learning all the tips and tricks that professional photographers use.

Here is my SOOC:


Here is my edited:
I probably could have messed around a little bit more with the hue/saturation, but I was too anxious to play with textures.


Added texture:

This was the first time I'd ever played with textures. I have seen pictures with the textured look and love how the photos turn out. I spent quite awhile perusing Shadowhouse Creations, another photo blogger. The textures I used are from this blog. What stunning photography! I can always spend hours on a blog when they have amazing photos.



  1. The thing I like about your image is that you started with a great SOOC. You might consider using a screen layer...and then using a layer mask to PAINT ON the screen layer to the right side of his face (will brighten it up and reduce some of the shadow). I'm so glad you enjoyed playing with textures. Jerry has a wonderful website and his textures are incredible.

  2. I agree with the previous comment. Your SOOC is great. What a cutie.

    Jerry's site is one of the best for textures. And you're right about his photography.
