Texture adds something wonderful to a photo, drawing you into the image and creating impact. Texture can highlight details on the surface of an object; macro photography often works with texture in such detail that it is not immediately apparent and not necessary to recognize what the object is. The beauty is in the detail. Texture in relationship with other elements in a photograph can create drama, and it can also provide information about the object being photographed. Here are a few textural photographs I snapped on my travels through the US.
Contrast (in tone or colour), curves (more curves!) and patterns are interesting components of textural photography. I’d love to see your take on the theme.
