Learn By Doing Photography Assignment #11 Seeing the Texture around us!

All textures look different depending on the light used. Experiment this week with different lights and different textures. What happens when the light is coming from the side compared to the top. What effect does it have if you’re shooting on a cloudy day versus a sunny day.

Textures are subtle, they don’t just jump out at you. You have to look for them. On my walk this morning I took a lot of pictures, but when I got home and looked at them nothing jumped out at me. It was a cloudy day so my brick wall looked flat as did the grass as did everything else I took a picture of. So when I got home I looked around for something in the house, I found these lentils. The top picture is with light coming from the left. On the bottom picture they are placed in even light. On the second one you barely see the rows I made with my fingers

Be sure to watch the video below, it’s quick and to the point.

The second picture has even light which lost all depth. Light plays such an important part of photography, something I am still trying to understand! I will be practicing all week on this assignment!
