Tutorial Thurs./Fri. Oct. 2

A day late this week – busy times! This week’s tutorial takes one of my barn images and gives it some “spooky” grunge!

ORIGINAL IMAGE

I duplicated my original layer in PS. Open Topaz Studio 2. I used two “Looks”. (1) A Little Dingy and (2) Distressed Grunge (I did not change any of the settings in the presets).

Next, I added a Filter > Texture. Group: Meredith Images > Wisp. Change blending mode to Multiply and opacity to 45%.

I then added a border from the new Border Collection listed below. I used Border 7 (the png). Changed the blending mode to Soft Light and opacity to 75%. And voila!

Here is a screen shot of the final layers as well as the final image.

WEBINAR NEXT WEEK!
REGISTER NOW!

My next webinar will be October 6th at 4:00 pm EDT
“Creating & Using Textures”

I just finished putting the final touches on the projects for next week! I will show you quite a few ways to create textures, and modify images to make your own textures. These projects can be done in Elements as well as Photoshop (though some brushes are different in Elements). I will also share some ways to download more brushes to PS CC and sources for free and paid brushes to make your own unique textures.

FALL BARNS & BACKROADS WORKSHOPS

As we all know, the Covid crisis has put a damper on much of our travel, events, concerts, etc. I postponed the early Fall Barns & Backroads Workshops until Spring, however the last 4 workshops are a GO! Some people who were signed up want to go – a few have opted to wait until Spring or Fall 2021.

Therefore, I have some openings for the upcoming sessions if any of you are itching to get out and photograph! These are small groups (MAX. 4 people). Of course, if anyone feels ill before they get here they should not come (we can reschedule you). As you know, Dave & I already had Covid, and we both have antibodies.

That said, if you’d like to join us, come on down! Following are the dates and number of spots at this moment:
October 22-25 3 spots open
October 29-Nov. 1 3 spots open
November 3-6 2 spots open
November 8-11 2 spots open

You can find more info on our website HERE.
And you can sign up in our online store HERE.
We also have the option for accommodations if you’d like to stay with us in our home (we have two guest rooms). If you are interested in this, just shoot me an email first to be sure space is available (Hazel@MeredithImages.com).
