Digital Backgrounds

Digital Backgrounds

Last year I created a lot of digital backgrounds (which are available to buy) that can be used to add texture to a plain background in a portrait photo.

For example, the photo below shows the portrait, taken again against a plain white background and processed in Lightroom. I have then added a digital texture overlay in Photoshop and blended into the background area. Move the slider to see the result.

As you can see, it adds a little interest to the back and make it look as if it is taken against material and a texture.

I have also been creating some smoke overlays. These really add atmosphere to the photos and can give some dramatic results.


It can even be made to look like fire.


Digital backgrounds can even be used to make photos look old and as with the next photos, like a painting on textured paper.


You can see more examples of this in my Textures Gallery below or buy them from my Etsy shop, or use the links in the blogs sidebar.
