Toning and Texturing

After Kim Klassen mentioned again that we should try out Rad Lab, I downloaded the demo. And I love it. Better than actions and you get to see what it will look like before committing, so you don’t have to undo and redo over and over. I took a picture from yesterday and did two different things with it. This is when I sure wish the mouse over worked in WordPress. This picture is also one of my Opposing Lines shots for The Kay Eye View.

I used the Orange You Glad I didn’t Say Banana stylet.

Here I used the Rad Lab Grandpa’s Tap Shoes stylet and then PW’s 70’s action. 


I also have another picture that I added texture to for Kim Klassen’s Texture Tuesday. This one I used KK’s texture Shade of November in the background and the new texture Phoebe (love) as an overlay at 63%, each after cropping the picture down a little to show less tree and more clock. Being as the theme is the number 2, there are 2 of them on the clock. This is also another example with Opposing Lines in the shot. This is the 3rd time I have gone and taken a picture of this clock. I love the look of it. And I love the way it pops out of the textured background in this photo.

  1. your photos are stunning. I just love the processing you have done to them. after seeing your photos, i need to learn more about rad lab!


    1. Thank you Bek. I love the clock too. I have gone back to take its picture 3 times now. With the changing of the leaves. I hope that the leaves will be redish next time.


  2. I love both edits of the bridge. I think I may be a bit partial to the sepia look as it gives a vintage, soft feel. The colors in that clock shot are lovely as well. Thank you for sharing and for linking up with Tones on Tuesday!


    1. Thank you Emily. See, what is good about things like your link up and Kim’s is that I try different things with edits that I might normally never have tried. Thank you for that.


  3. I downloaded Rad Lab too and love it. Not sure I can afford to buy it but will enjoy it while I can. Love all the edits you did with it and the clock is fabulous.


    1. Thank you Pat. I would love to be able to pay for Rad Lab after. But I also would rather continue taking online courses in photography. Either way it is a win but I have to choose which I would rather have. Lol.
