Learn how to create film grain or noise the right way through Photoshop Layers with BPSOP instructor Lee Varis!

I thought I’d revisit the Noise in an Overlay layer technique to update it with some advanced “tweaks.” Learn how to use the Noise filter effectively as well as save noise or other textures in “Patterns.” Finally, see how to create a rough stone texture using the Clouds filter.

  • I just completed the Art of Seeing course, and I just want to tell you that this course was everything I hoped it would be. It opened my eyes to look at a scene in a new and different way than I had been previously. I can honestly say I have seen a dramatic difference in my images now than prior to taking this class. Thank you to Bryan and Chris for the lesson plan and assignments given during the class. Chris, thank you for you critiques and suggestions to a few of my images. Your critiques and suggestions were greatly appreciated. I would recommend this course to anyone looking for ways to improve their photography and take better photos. Read More
