The Daily Texture for 12/30/2015
Today's Daily Texture is all about the SUN, which we've seen so little of here lately during the early winter. I paired this texture with another photo of cute little Delta, a Chocolate Labrador Retriever puppy. On the day I was a photographing her, the sun was fleeting, only peeking out for small moments. I caught her as she turned upside down and she opened her paws as if to welcome it's warmth. I used this texture on top of her original photo, in two layers. One was a multiply layer at 100% with some of that layer masked off her face and belly. The second layer was a soft light one, also at 100% with some masked off her face and belly as well. This texture was the perfect choice to accentuate the glow she had on her sweet little nose. :)
