Today my wife and I were driving around the lake near our church looking for interesting textures. These are the eight I settled on as the best.
#1: This is my favorite. There were several horses grazing in the field and I was able to get close enough to take a nice pictures of the side of this horse. I like the texture that the horse’s hair provides.
#2: We came across a dead tree, weathered, and without any bark. The wood was bleached out by the sun and I thought the coloring was really interesting.
#3 & #8: As we were leaving the lake was came across a business that sells grave stones. Some of the pieces of marble on display had some great patterns to them.
#4 & #5: This was a stone/gravel portion of the road. I took two different pictures of this stretch of road with different magnifications.
#6: I wanted to see if I could get an interesting shot with the lake water providing the texture and this was the best I could manage today.
#7: This was a plank retaining wall. The texture is a little more on the busy side but I still like the way the picture turned out.August 23, 2021 at 1:11 pm #64335
This is REALLY great guys! I’ve never critiqued photos of textures like this before, so it’s going to be fun to figure out how to do this!August 24, 2021 at 4:52 am #64342Caitlin ComptonParticipantAugust 24, 2021 at 3:05 pm #64355August 26, 2021 at 6:55 pm #64480
I spent some time this last couple of weeks taking and editing pictures of interesting textures. I did, however, pull two photos from my portfolio.
When I was editing my pictures, I noticed that several of them turned out crooked. I fixed this with the editing program but I was wondering if any of you had tips on how to make your lines straight in camera.
