As you probably know, I am always on the lookout for things which can improve my photography, accentuate my style, allow me to learn something new and to become a better photographer. Last night I stumbled across Jessica Drossin Photography. Not only is she a talented photographer whose images are all totally unique and original to anything I’ve ever seen, but she is a master of textures. She knows how to use them perfectly to enhance her photos AND she has her own set which she sells for a VERY reasonably price, if you ask me – it’s a steal ($17). After I tried a few of her free textures which can be found on her texture site, I knew that buying the full set of textures would be MORE than worth the $17.
I’ve had the textures for less than 24 hours, but from what I’ve seen so far – I’m in love with them and I will definitely use them for my future works. Some examples shown below:
(these were all used with Jessica Drossin textures) If you’re interested in reading more about Jessica Drossin and her fantastic textures check out this MCP Actions Interview.
The only problem with textures is that they bring a certain level of danger. Using an action which over empowers a photo is never a good idea. When using an action I want to make sure that it enhances my photo, and not distracts from it. I’m known for going “texture shopping” and actually have my own set of textures. I barely use them, except when experimenting, but here is an example of one of my textures:
Hope that this has been interesting, and that you all go out and buy Jessica Drossin’s set of textures. They are amazing. Buy them here.
