Picture Inspiration: Weeks 37-39 TEXTURES!!

Picture Inspiration: 52 Weeks of Photocentric Creativity and Community

Catching up! These few weeks we are celebrating textures – the kind you can use with your images.  Kim Klassen posted an instructional video and some free textures for us to use.  It’s something I’ve been wanting to try so I was happy to have a chance to play.

Week 37: Texture Love

Use any image at all to play with. No rules! Experiment, play, and just try it out.

This was so much easier than I ever thought it was! Oh boy  am I in trouble now.

Here’s the original image: 

Week 38: A Delicate Balance
There is a delicate balance between the image and the texture.  Do you feel like a textured image is better with another texture or a simple, smooth image is best?   Try finding a delicate balance.

A balance between the bud and the flower in the background. A subtle texture. Heaven! 


Week 39: Leaving Textures

There is no shortage of texture this time of year.  Crackled bark, crinkled leaves… all the lovely and wonderful signs of the season! Use your angle and your light to accentuate the glorious and gritty texture you find.

OK gang.  I’m off to go discover more textures!

Picture Inspiration is a companion space to the Picture Series classes and consists of weekly photocentric prompts, challenges and projects.  It’s a virtual coffee shop – a place to gather, chat, share photos, glean insignts, ask questions, and get inspired.  Through connection and creativity, we are delving deeper into what it means to use photography to reveal the magic in our everyday lives.


I'd love to hear your thoughts.
