I guess I am sort of doing a series of Churches right now..I'm not really sure when it will be "finished" and I haven't really defined any guidelines for this on-going project of mine. I just really enjoy taking photographs of Churches. I started with this one, then I took this one. I finally snapped this one on Sunday..this is my Church. It's so warm and inviting and I always feel at home there.
Maple Springs United Methodist Church
2569 Reynolda Rd
I have one texture that I looove in particular so I use it a lot..I used it in the photograph above, as well as my other 2 Church pictures.
You can find that texture, as well as hundred of others (all free!!) here.
With most of the photographs that I add textures to, I have a pretty standard process: Open in Photoshop, Auto Contrast/Levels/Color, add texture (overlay..fiddle with opacity 'til I like it), go back to original photograph layer and bump up contrast a smidge, then take it into Picnik where I add the border and text.
Oh, and with this image, I also used the clone stamp to take out that tree that was hanging out on the right hand side.
