I set up this little still life and shot it with my Nikon d7000 and my 35mm prime lens.
(However, I waited until too late in the afternoon to have my best natural light.)
I edited the photo with a curves adjustment and a layer of Kim's 2203 and a layer of Kim's 2303 textures.
I remember I used multiply mode,
but I can't remember what opacity I used because I thought I would remember and didn't write it down.
(Yep, that's me.)
Anyway, here's another shot with the same textures but different settings, (which I did not write down).
And here are some more "cup and saucer" shots without texture...
I've still got so much to learn about photography and photo editing.
I'm enjoying practicing, but sometimes I get frustrated when my photos don't turn out as well as I would like.
On the other hand, sometimes I'm super surprised and pleased at a shot I took,
and I guess that's the reward for not giving up and an encouragement to keep trying.
I guess it's like the rest of life, not quitting, not giving up,
is probably one of the hardest and most important life lessons to learn.
