Photography Tutorial: Using Overlay Textures to Enhance Your Photos (Plus a Free Texture Download!)

  In addition to all the crazy amounts of crocheting I’ve been doing, I’m trying to get a little photography knowhow under my belt so I can take beautiful pictures of all my crafts and this little tutorial over at Live And Love Out Loud caught my eye.

I can’t say that I’ve been doing too much in the land of photography lately as I’m still crocheting and ripping up things as I figure out exactly what I want to make for the holiday handmade show here in Denver, CO, but I’ve been saving little notes like this for future reference.  Plus, free texture downloads!  Who can pass up free?

Good luck and make some beautiful photos even  more beautiful!

Most of us already know about not using the flash and to take photos during the day, but there are some helpful hints on this post about the right backgrounds and the importance behind printing out your favorite shots for keeps.

See the full post here.
