Using texture on a hollyhock.

One of the photographers I do follow is Matt Kloskowski and yesterday I watched a video of him using texture in images. You can view a brief introduction into adding texture by going to his site and watching the video on this page.

I’ve never used the select subject before to add texture, so I thought I would go the way of how he does his texturing. And boy, is it much easier and quicker.

A month or so ago, as part of a couple of photography challenges, I submitted a yellow hollyhock. And I thought this would be an ideal photograph.

Yellow hollyhock

Camera: Canon EOS 70D
Lens: Canon EF-S60mm f/2.8 Macro USM
F/Number: f/3.5
ISO: 100
Focal Distance: 60 mm

Shutter Speed: 1/320 sec
Photograph Date: 31.07.2022
Photographer: Bren

I used two difference textures, and once I was back in Lightroom, I used my Soft-Focus Floral Preset. And in the crop tool changed the angle to -10.86
