This week’s Sunday Stills Photography challenge is all about texture. Textures occur both in nature and in human-made materials, and it all around us. A random photo of a mundane item can yield extraordinary textures you might not have noticed with just the naked eye.
In texture photography, it’s all about patterns, colors and depth, and every single detail of a texture plays a significant role in the overall perception of the photograph.
This photo of Aero laying on my bed shows the contrast in textures of his cocoa-brown fur against the soft textiles of the bed linens.
In this image captured at our local elementary school, I love the textures of the flags hung on the fence.
Texture can appear both in macro photography and in landscape photography.
Today I have the pleasure of sharing two photos by Molly from Shallow Reflections. She mentioned Maine has its peak Autumn colors now and graciously sent me several photos to use!
I love the textures she captured in this garden gnome, not only in the carving’s materials, but in the surrounding garden. Totally serendipitous she sent me this photo full of texture…
Molly also sent me this stunning Autumn image of trees reflected in a lake. I’m sure the live view showed the textural contrast against the reflected two-dimensional view of the trees.
I’m submitting Molly’s beautiful tree image for this week’s Sunday Trees.
And for Dawn’s weekly feature Festival of Leaves.
Here is one of my own Autumn textures to add:
Textures can also appear in music, food, writing, the list goes on.
