I Heart Faces: I Heart Texture

As it turns out, I REALLY love texture in photography. I just think it's absolutely gorgeous and stunning and I wish I could get better at doing it. Apparently practice makes perfect though, so I've been playing with it a lot lately. I'm no pro like Gina or Jessica or Kelli, but I do love the depth you can bring to your photography simply by adding a little texture.

That said, here's a picture of little Jayci-face with a little added texture.

One of the texture masters is Shana Rae, and she's the guest judge this week. So be sure to stop by and see all the wonderful entries at I Heart Faces!

  12. I really love this. Aside from the fact that she's a cutie, I do love the editing too. You can definitely tell there's a texture but it's not at all overwhelming. Great job. I've been looking through your blog and you are quite talented!
