Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Blending textures with Hard Light, part of Photoshop for Designers: Textures (2011).
We've seeing working with Soft Light;…I'm using that to integrate our texture into images.…How about working with Hard Light which is going to give you a more contrasting…result as it names suggests?…Here we have a candle and a wineglass photographed on a wooden table.…Now I didn't know that because my friend Todd who has supplied this image to me told me that.…But it's a very interesting image.…Images like this I really good to work with, because they're great to use as…textures and they're really easy and fun to take.…You just get your camera and you shake it vigorously while to pointing a light source.…
Of course, results are unpredictable, but they can work out really well and…they can add an instance dynamism to images like this which otherwise might…look little bit static.…When we put this on separate layer and we change the Blend mode to Hard Light,…we get something like that and what could be easier than that?…
