Hello and happy Tuesday!!! I’m super exited because today I’m announcing my new photography texture store! I’ve hinted at it a few times, and mentioned in in Instagram posts, but today I’m making it blog official. 🙂
The texture store is still very much a growing work in progress; new textures and overlays will be added regularly. After I have a few more resources ready to go, I’m considering starting a “texture club” where members can receive new and exclusive resources each month! But that’s still a little bit in the future. For today, I have other goodies to share!
To celebrate, From now until St. Patrick’s Day, I’m giving away a pack of 30 in-camera shamrock bokeh overlays!
The files are a huge (7360×4912 pixels) and saved as PNGs, so they’re easy to add onto virtually any image with software that uses layers (such as Photoshop, Gimp, or Pixlr). Just use the form below this post to sign up for my weekly newsletter and you’ll receive the download link! It’s very important that you use the form on this post, or another post labeled as “photography” in order to get your free overlays – if you use a different form, you won’t receive the overlay download link. Also, if you are already a subscriber, please go ahead and use the same email address! You are absolutely more than welcome to this freebie, so no need to use a different address. If you use the same email, I’ll make sure you don’t suddenly start getting newsletters twice. =)
Here are a few images to show you the type of thing you can expect from this overlay pack:
To celebrate even more, you can also get 50% off anything in the store for the next three weeks using the coupon code “launchspecial”!
To access the texture store, you can either head their directly on Selz (the platform I’m currently using to host the store) or go to the Photography Resources -> Photography Texture Store tab in the site menu.
Many of the images I’ve shared recently were edited with textures now available in the texture store! For example, I used a linen texture on this one:
If you’re unsure about how to use textures, don’t worry! I have resources available for you, and I’m happy to answer questions.
Both videos give tips for manipulating and customizing the textures to achieve exactly the look you’re going for!
Playing with textures is so much fun, and they’re a lovely way to express your creativity. I hope you enjoy the new texture store! As Ansel Adams said, “You don’t take a photograph, you make it.” 🙂
