We finish up Exploring with a Camera: Found Texture today! There will be a new Exploring with a Camera posted tomorrow – I’m moving the series to Friday starting this week. You can link in your final texture images today, or just spend some time exploring the found texture from other participants. Lots of great texture has been shared!
As we went through this exploration over the last couple of weeks, I started thinking and noticing the difference between tactile texture and color texture. The image above, a side of a boat, is a perfect example. The surface of the boat is fairly smooth, you can see the reflected light that indicates the smoothness at the top, but the color is not even as you move toward the bottom. That variation in color and shine creates the appearance of more texture than there actually was. The bottom part in the image is still fairly smooth, but visually it shows up with more texture. An interesting study of how texture shows up in images. Color and tone can show as much texture as something physically bumpy!
I hope you enjoyed this exploration into Found Texture! I look forward to starting a new topic tomorrow. See you then!
Oh, and don’t forget the giveaway! If you link in you have a chance to win a set of my “Texture” postcards. I’ll draw and announce the winner on the weekend.
