FINAL THOUGHTS

Each Blending Mode can help you create some incredible additions to your artwork and some of them (like the popular ones) have pretty common, reliable results. However, it’s always important to experiment with any given layer and the modes to see how it will affect your unique composition of one solitary image. The takeaway here is to use the tools you have at your disposal to their fullest potential and to make sure you know what that potential is before you move forward to commit resources to the “next great thing.” As photographers and artists, we often overlook all that our gear and software can do and that is a challenge worth taking up in our travels.
