I shot these photos in Macro Mode. I then adjusted the Original image using and Adjustment Layer Levels. Then I placed the Texture image on top of the Original and lower the opacity. After I lowered the opacity I applied a mask on the Texture image and removed the texture from the bottle and the hat and then lower the opacity even more on other areas of the background.

High Dynamic Range

This was so much fun, because I have never done HDR before. I took these photos using my Auto Exposure Bracketing (AEB). Each photo was taken using my tripod and self-timer so I had the exact same photo with, but just different exposures. I set my exposure to be -2, 2, +2. Then I pulled all images into Dynamic Photo to combined them into one Photo, that way you see the textures and contrast of the three photos all in one.
