A Discplacement Map allows you to put a pattern onto a surface in a more realistic way. It is basically one step up from adding textures. 
 
Week Forty-Eight - Displacement Maps!
 
I wanted to continue the polka dot theme from her bathing suit and bring it onto her skin. With this technique the dots starts to wrap around her instead of just lay on top of her. Look closely and you can see it on her shoulder and check. I definitely like this and will be doing it again soon!

52 Week Photo Challenge - Week Forty-Seven!

There are lot's of different ways you can add texture to your photographs. Textures add unique qualities to images no matter what the subject. Now-a-days it is really easy to add textures to photos right from your phone. Putting a texture on a photo you took with your phone most often makes it that much better. 
 
Week Forty-Seven - Add a Texture in Photoshop!
 
After I added a wrinkled paper texture to this photo I though I would take it one step farther and rip the page, as if there was a piece missing. I used a torn edge brush in photoshop and this is what I got. Not bad!

When a good friend of mine approached me with this photo idea to decorate her brothers beard as a tree for Christmas, I immediately knew I had to capture the whole thing and make a time lapse. 
 
Week Forty-Six - Time Lapse!
 
I set the camera up and attached it to a computer program that was set to take a photo every 5 seconds. We made sure the lights were on and the stage was set and then went to town! This collaboration was so much fun! No one knew how the end result was going to turn out. Success!!

Week Forty-Five - Mirror Image in Photoshop!
 
One of my favorite photo shoots was with this gorgeous cape. I love the way the fabric flows and I knew it would be a great image to mirror. The symmetry created gives the whole image a surreal feel. This one even feels like she might be a conjoined twin.
