Photoshop Tutorial: Creating Grunge & Texture Receipes

August 04, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

I have a confession to make:

Do you know what my biggest difficulty in editing used to be? 

Consistency!

I was all over the place with my editing. In fact I could have probably won an award for "Most Actions & Presets Used."

Unfortunately for both me and my portrait clients, that meant that my style was never cohesive AND it took me forever to edit a session.

Seriously, I would start form scratch every single time I started a new image, like I was reinventing the wheel.

Plus I had no signature "look." No one would have looked at my work and said "Ah, that looks like Jen Kiaba took that photograph."

And that's what we all want, right? 

Having our work recognized as uniquely ours is what brings us clients and artistic recognition.

Whether it's a wedding client or a gallery looking at your portfolio, you Need to Have Consistency!

So when I first sat down to begin my newest body of work, I literally wrote down all of the steps that I took to create the image.

Almost a year and half later I am still using that same recipe.

Say What?? A Recipe?

Yup. I have an actual recipe that I will be sharing in an upcoming tutorial.

But for now I'm going to teach you how to create your very own recipe using the textures I've given you, plus a peek at the texture recipe that I've been using the last 18 months or so.

So here it is, take a watch:

I hope that this tip help you save a ton of time, AND helps you communicate a consistent style to your clients.

As always happy creating!
