    13. 13. Texture Photography What is a TEXTURE?
    14. 14. Texture Photography What is a TEXTURE? Textures are simply another photo of a pattern. This could be a close up shot of a shaggy rug, interesting cloud formations, a wrought-iron fence, your pet's fur, a brick wall, or anything else that has an interesting design or texture to the image.

This could be a close up shot of a shaggy rug, interesting cloud formations, a wrought-iron fence, your pet's fur, a brick wall, or anything else that has an interesting design or texture to the image. Perhaps, the first question that should be addressed is WHY shoot texture photography?

Perhaps, the first question that should be addressed is WHY shoot texture photography? The answer is quite simple. As photographers, we need to create images that have impact, and the proper utilization of texture can add impact to images.

Perhaps, the first question that should be addressed is WHY shoot texture photography? The answer is quite simple. As photographers, we need to create images that have impact, and the proper utilization of texture can add impact to images. By adding the use of texture to our skill set, we expand our skills and become better photographers.

As photographers, we need to create images that have impact, and the proper utilization of texture can add impact to images. By adding the use of texture to our skill set, we expand our skills and become better photographers. Thus, texture becomes another tool that is available in our skill set that can be drawn on at any time.
    19. 19. Seeing Texture Seeing texture is a challenge in itself. Conveying that texture in an image requires extra attention to lighting.
    20. 20. Seeing Texture Seeing texture is a challenge in itself. Conveying that texture in an image requires extra attention to lighting. Textures are better seen from a low angled sidelight.
    21. 21. Seeing Texture Seeing texture is a challenge in itself. Conveying that texture in an image requires extra attention to lighting. Textures are better seen from a low angled sidelight. You will find macro shooting will give you a greater choice of textures to shoot since you need to fill your frame with the texture.
    22. 22. Seeing Texture Seeing texture is a challenge in itself. Conveying that texture in an image requires extra attention to lighting. Textures are better seen from a low angled sidelight. You will find macro shooting will give you a greater choice of textures to shoot since you need to fill your frame with the texture. Don’t limit yourself! Nearly anything can be a texture.
    23. 23. Composition Three aspects of composition are particularly important in texture photography: Contrast Curves Patterns
    24. 24. Contrast Contrast: Contrast comes in two forms: tonal contrast (light/dark) and color contrast. Either one works well for texture photography.
    25. 25. Curves Texture can often take the form of curves . When this is the case, the curves tend to fall into one of two categories: leading curves and non-leading curves.
    26. 26. Curves Texture can often take the form of curves . When this is the case, the curves tend to fall into one of two categories: leading curves and non-leading curves. Leading curves serve to lead a viewer's eye. Specifically, they lead the viewer's eye to the center of interest.
    27. 27. Curves Texture can often take the form of curves . When this is the case, the curves tend to fall into one of two categories: leading curves and non-leading curves. Leading curves serve to lead a viewer's eye. Specifically, they lead the viewer's eye to the center of interest. Non-leading curves do not lead a viewer's eye to the center of interest. Leading Curves Non-Leading Curves
    28. 28. Patterns Patterns are frequently very effective at catching people's attention. However, when used in photographs, simple patterns by themselves often don't hold the attention for very long.
    29. 29. Patterns Patterns are frequently very effective at catching people's attention. However, when used in photographs, simple patterns by themselves often don't hold the attention for very long. There are a couple of ways that patterns in textures can be made more effective: multiple patterns and breaking the pattern.
    30. 30. Patterns Patterns are frequently very effective at catching people's attention. However, when used in photographs, simple patterns by themselves often don't hold the attention for very long. There are a couple of ways that patterns in textures can be made more effective: multiple patterns and breaking the pattern. When using multiple patterns, two or more patterns, that reinforce each other, are used Notice the flower two patterns? The center of the flower and the petals are two distinct patterns.
    31. 31. Patterns Patterns are frequently very effective at catching people's attention. However, when used in photographs, simple patterns by themselves often don't hold the attention for very long. There are a couple of ways that patterns in textures can be made more effective: multiple patterns and breaking the pattern. When using multiple patterns, two or more patterns, that reinforce each other, are used Notice the flower two patterns? The center of the flower and the petals are two distinct patterns. Breaking the pattern. This is usually done by inserting an object into the pattern. The inserted object should be carefully placed in such a manner that it enhances the composition. (Remember the rule of thirds!).
    32. 32. Where? OK, we’ve seen some examples of textures, but WHERE else can you find textures?
    33. 33. Where? OK, we’ve seen some examples of textures, but WHERE else can you find textures? Are you ready for this.....?
    34. 34. Textures, textures everywhere! Frost/rain/dew/snow Moss/sand/grass/ water/rocks Old Paint/metal/ wood/concrete/ marble/brick Hair/skin Paper Spices/birdseed Furniture/ curtains,rugs
    35. 35. Endless Options Buildings Rock Logs Plants Trees Insects
    36. 36. OK, now what? Now that we have all these textures, what do we DO with them??
    37. 37. OK, now what? Now that we have all these textures, what do we DO with them?? You can simply take texture photos for FUN and to keep in your personal photo collection.
    38. 38. OK, now what? Now that we have all these textures, what do we DO with them?? You can simply take texture photos for FUN and to keep in your personal photo collection. You can use photo programs such as Photoshop Elements or Corel Draw to enhance your photos.
    39. 39. Photo Programs Using photo programs to utilize your textures can be as simple as creating a unique background for your photo without altering the original at all.

    59. 59. Conclusion As you can see, there is a LOT you can do with textures! You are only limited by your own creativity.
    60. 60. Conclusion As you can see, there is a LOT you can do with textures! You are only limited by your own creativity. Where ever you go, keep your eye out for textures. Use your phone to shoot it if you have to!
    61. 61. Conclusion As you can see, there is a LOT you can do with textures! You are only limited by your own creativity. Where ever you go, keep your eye out for textures. Use your phone to shoot it if you have to! Even if you aren’t sure WHAT to do with them yet, START SHOOTING! You never know when you will need one.
    62. 62. Conclusion As you can see, there is a LOT you can do with textures! You are only limited by your own creativity. Where ever you go, keep your eye out for textures. Use your phone to shoot it if you have to! Even if you aren’t sure WHAT to do with them yet, START SHOOTING! You never know when you will need one. Keep a separate folder on your computer for your textures to make them easier to find.
    63. 63. Workshop! Have FUN!! Shoot from different angels, heights and distances, but always FILL THE FRAME! Try shooting with and without your flash, this will create different effects. Camera settings are up to you, but here are a few guidelines:  If you are shooting with a macro lens then set the F-stop to F-16 or smaller.   If you are shooting in Program mode then make sure the shutter speed is at least 1/60th or slower (unless they are using a tripod)....since you will have flash available there shouldn't be any problems with sharp focus.   Remember you can up your ISO. It is helpful to keep a faster shutter speed during darker situations, and increasing your ISO will allow you to do this. If you are using a point-n-shoot and using the macro setting, do NOT to use the zoom feature (with a point n shoot if you are too close and then zoom...it will NOT focus).   Get closer with the camera!I would suggest they use SPOT focus system.
    64. 64. Contest! Take a picture of a MACRO texture no one else can identify! You must fill the frame and submissions must be straight from the camera - NO EDITING in photo programs! This in includes no cropping. What is it???
