“Texture in the natural world” photo contest  

This contest challenges you to look and find the appropriate interesting objects for shooting and to take part with your personal images on the topic.


Feel the freedom of photography

Texture in nature include photos showing the composition of an object in nature. It can be formed by surface irregularities, such as at the surface of an old brick or small shapes which are located on a surface as those on a pile of coins.

In this type of photography, taking pictures of details on the surface of the object is the most important characteristic for a photograph. The actual object is of lower significance. In order to use this technique, the camera must be positioned for a close-up detail, or can be shot only part of the whole picture. An example of this type of texture image will close up patterns seen in old rock formations.

This style can be a challenge, since the composition, light and depth work differently in comparison with, for example, landscape photography. In texture photography, it's all about patterns, colors and depth. Every single detail plays a significant role in the overall perception of the image. The combination of these complex details, interesting patterns, vibrant colors and greater depth - all contribute to a more beautiful picture.

Obviously, to shoot texture, you must first find it. Finding the ordinary is very easy. They are all around us and not have to go far to find them - you can shoot everything from brick wall to the grass in the backyard.

Finding a unique, beautiful and eye-catching textures, on the other hand is difficult. But once you start looking, you'll begin to notice many more all around you. And eventually you will begin to encounter those that are unique and beautiful. When working, use a tripod, if possible. Experimenting is perhaps one of the most important things.
