I Heart Faces Week 4 — Texture

I recently discovered the  cool site, I Heart Faces, and decided to participate in this week’s challenge. After retiring from my teaching/writing/editing profession, I’ve very recently begun to capture family and children’s portraits, and learn some tricks in PhotoShop.

I took this photo of  great-nephew Hunter who pretended he was a big cat and prowled in the natural grasses in Forest Park, St Louis, site of the 1904 World’s Fair. The grasses provided great texture in the SOOC shot. But then I added the PhotoShop CS4 Sunspot Texture with an opacity of 30% for a golden glow.
