Digital Textures

Since moving house and living nearer the coast and moors, I have been inspired to start taking images for use as digital textures.

I have then also been using some of these images to add into my own portrait photos to give the background a bit of detail or even adding them to some of my landscape photos.

In this image I added a textured background (tm 1860) which was actually a photo of a piece of road.

When you start photographing textures and start looking at patterns it gets quite addictive and you end up finding textures in everything. I’ve photographed pavements, wood, sand and interesting granite rocks. These texture were taken on the beach.

One of them created a great background for this image.

I’ve found some great granite rocks too.

These have then enabled me to create these 2 images.

The first works really well as an old style image, using 2 textures and the second and just made the photo have an interesting feel to it.

Other texture packs are

Rough Granite v3

Sand

Beach Rocks v3

and more…

So if you are a portrait photographer, landscape photographer or even a crafts person, please take a look at my Etsy shop to view my range of textures, where you can them buy them if you like them.

So, my first free texture is this one. It is of view old stonework. The file is a jpg image, 5000px across the long edge @ 300dpi and is profiled to AdobeRGB. Oh and it is a 10mb file.

It is free to download and use as you like for personal and commercial use. If you would like to link back to me via Twitter (@LeoPhotography) Instagram (@LeoPhotographyUK) or Facebook (@LeeOrchardPhotography), that is much appreciated, but not required.

Once the image has opened, you can save it to your computer using the save option on right mouse click menu.

Here is an image I have created using it.

I hope you like my first texture giveaway and I hope to see some of your creations using it.
