Blend Textures In Your Instagram Photography

If you are look­ing to add a bit more extra (or explore a bit) with your Pho­tog­ra­phy, specif­i­cally with Insta­gram, read on. It took me a while to track down these sources so I hope they help you find more cre­ative ways in using Insta­gram; and in the process, learn and grow more with your Pho­tog­ra­phy style.

For this post, I will be intro­duc­ing three peo­ple who are con­tribut­ing to the com­mu­nity by cre­at­ing and dis­trib­ut­ing free texture/pattern/overlay packs. You prob­a­bly have seen a lot of amaz­ing images lately using these or a com­bi­na­tion there of.

Nixon Modical Rotolog Watch

Cool, unique watch that I saw while browsing.

Get pre­ci­sion tim­ing in Nixon’s Mod­i­cal Rotolog Watch with lat­est style sport­ing a funky pat­terned enamel coat­ing. Whether your steeze is hip-hop or punk the Modical’s cus­tom 30 meter stain­less steel with hard­ened min­eral crys­tal case­back and stain­less steel straps show Nixon’s top of the line crafts­man­ship with diverse design. The Japan­ese Quartz time move­ment with led is eas­ily read from a roll dial on the right side of the cas­ing so you won’t be late for your skate ses­sion or cof­fee shop hang­out or what­ever. Use this watch in the dark with its back­ing light cause even though we’re oh so totally dif­fer­ent nobody has night vision, right?

MSRP is $449.95. But I saw it for about 50%-off at a deal site (now gone).
