No Longer a White Wall

This was a white wall. Plain ol' county office building wall. Right next to street parking, some lunch tables, surrounded by other rather drab buildings. You'd never guess it from these photos! Sky was definitely thinking about raining, which made for diffuse light - needed a pop of fill flash (ie, fill in the shadows just so... not too much as to wash her out).

Perfect surface to apply some textures. I'm looking forward to trying these out on a plain black wall too. These were done in photoshop, after the normal round of photo optimizing (white balance correction, brightening, lightening specific areas, saturating other areas, adding some blur). The textured effect is a layer over the image, so that it can be strategically erased - so that the scratchy/muddy marks aren't over her skin.
