Elements of Photographic Composition – Texture
If you think about it we use texture to describe many things: a rough day, a soft sweater, sharp as a tack, etc. Words such as these are associated with strong emotions – the trick is to take photographs that use textures that will also convey such strong emotions.
This is a lot of texture that I think might convey pain – definitely a strong emotion!!
For me there’s nothing like a smooth waterfall for destressing.
I’m not sure what really inspired me to take this shot of water ripples during a sunrise except I liked the way the colors were reflecting making the water look satiny.
