I’m enjoying the oil paint filter in Photoshop CC – especially when used on images like this with the brickwork and texture. I enjoy how it can add a touch of additional texture to an image.
There are some wonderful alleys in San Francisco – some filled with cafes like The Irish Bank. They’re worth exploring further. I keep telling Doug Kaye that we need to write the book: “The Stages of San Francisco”. The second in that series should be “The Alleys of San Francisco”. Great places for street photography is a great city.
This image was shot with my Fujifilm X-E2 and post-processed in Lightroom 5 with VSCO Film before tweaking with the oil paint filter in Photoshop CC.
