Call it artistic. Call it experimental. To me, it looks cool. Textured images help isolate the subjects by adding a mask around areas of less importance.
Fine Art Textures
Essentially, you are placing an image on top of your picture and changing the layer properties until you see something you like.
Use grunge textures to mask out any distractions in the background. The above image was taken in the kitchen of a venue.
The clear focus for this image was the bride’s face. Afterwards, your attention should gradually fade to the rest of her body, bouquet, dress, etc.
Check below for free grunge textures to download. However, to support the bandwidth costs, I encourage you to look into our entire grunge texture collection because all of these images are super high resolution. Most images were taken by Canon 40D (I think 12MP).
Another Sample of Grunge Texture
Here is another picture of a bride I shot and added a texture to it. I wanted to give it a rustic feel since the image was taken at a vineyard.
