Before & After w/ Textures

I recently submitted my picture to Love that Shot to be considered in promotion of their new Fairytale texture collection. Check that out here. I normally don't use textures on my photos but these are so beautiful and can really transform an image. Below is a before and after of an image of my sister. I thought her hair was a little outa control and worked on that a little. The second image was my initial edit and the final image is using two textures from the collection.

Free Aztec Illustrator Patterns

Check out my blog dedicated to Aztec Inspiration 

This semester I have been concentrating on building a photography business. A huge part of that is branding! I am using Pinterest to collect images that I think represent and inspire me.  I wanted to learn more about designing illustrator patterns to help with the marketing material. Here is my first attempt at it, 4 Aztec patterns you can download for free here! This file sharing is all new to me so let me know if it works out and what you think of them. Hopefully I will be creating more to share soon!

Just a few tips when using patterns:

To scale the pattern but not the object -- select the object, double click the scale tool, and set the scale % with the object box unmarked.

The same goes with rotating the pattern but doubling clicking the rotate tool.

To move the pattern within the object -- select the object, hold down the ` key (just before the 1 on keyboard) and move the pattern with mouse or up/down arrows.

 I was required to make some portrait photos for my photography class. My sister was the lucky one I chose to work with :) Here are some of the photos that came from it.
