This is a crop of my image BOXER 1
The texture in this image was achieved by cropping the original digital file which drastically reduced the resolution of the file,
- Convert to B&W
- Adjust levels [contrast]
- Push levels again even further
- Add soft blur layer
- Adjust soft blur layer.
- Repeat until happy!
Essentially, there is nothing there that wasn’t in the original somewhere…
