The other day I found a site with "Grunge Textures" for Photoshop. I looked at some of the pictures that had used them and they made the rather normal pictures look amazing! So I figured now is my time to try it out!

So today I went to do some senior pictures this morning and left a little early. It was really foggy outside, and I thought it would be the perfect lighting to take some fun contrasty pictures. It was! I found a sweet abandoned couch in an unbuilt neighborhood, and thought it looked pretty fun! So I made some standard corrections and came up with this picture. Then I added a "weathered wood" texture overlay, and created this bad boy!

Then I tried some "weathered barn siding" Which I also like. The horizontal lines make it look like it should be on the cover of and Indie Band's CD!

Then I tried this scratched "aircraft aluminum" which I still think looks pretty cool, but of the three its my least favorite.

All in all, I enjoyed trying these out! It was way fun, and the texture overlays are free at Grunge Textures. Try some out and let me know what yours ended up looking like!

Okay so we probably have 3 pictures of my dog, Eggie [yeah, her name is Eggie Egbert :) ] Two of which were taken the first week we got her when she was a cute little puppy. So I took a couple of her today, and I realized she is still cute, just not all of her at once! You have to take her in doses.

Oh, and this is my second post. TWO DAYS IN A ROW! Go me, woohoo!

Taken courtesy of Laurisa and Jordie's Feet. We had a blast playing with my new studio (well I did, they had to sit in a hot studio, and lay on cold hard cement, and have their feet drawn on with Sharpie TWICE! Oh well, that's what little sister's are for!)

Okay, since I am totally horrible at blogging and suck at life, here is my attempt to start a photography blog.
Whitney's One Hundred.
One hundred pictures that I took, that I will (hopefully) update everyday, and maybe some witty humor between the pictures.

Oh, and I love feedback and comments. Let me know what you think of the pictures, say "hi", leave some love, tell me about your day... Just say something! ♥Whit
