Bay Bridge _Plat and IR _ 4 Oct 14 _ Texture

No … I have not been in jail … or the hospital … or have I died …. I have just been busy with other things over the past few weeks and have not been posting any images recently.  One thing that I have been working on lately is re-working some of my images and putting a textured overlay on them.  I am surprised at how much you can change the look and feel of an image by just adding some texture in Photoshop.  The  ” old-school ” way was to do it in printing on textured paper, but you were also very limited by the few printing papers that you could select or by running the finished print through a texture-creating machine.  I have been doing some reading and found a technique that I that would be interesting and am starting to create some new images from old images.  The image above of Pensacola Bay around 1950 is an image that I thought would lend itself well to texturing and I think that it succeeded.  Also, a gift to my viewers, this image is an 8×10 full resolution sized file.  So if you want to down-load the file ( right click and Save as … ) you can make a print to keep.  Just call it an early Christmas gift.  Most of all of the other images on this blog are sized for the web for easy loading and viewing … nothing bothers me more than having to wait minutes for images to load because the photographer was not considerate enough to resize the image or images.  As usual, all comments are appreciated and welcomed.  Please check back, because I forgot to mention that I have been doing some scanning a lot of new negatives.  Thanks and please check back … Frank

One more of my favorite photographs that I ran through the Lucis Art Filter.  Note how intensified the sky becomes … I hope you enjoy.   Thanks for looking … Frank
