The theme for week 7 is “Texture.” The choices of subjects were endless… you could pick just about anything to shoot. Everything has a different texture… food, everyday objects, things in nature… the list goes on.
I was going to take a photo outdoors – maybe of some bark, tree needles… whatever caught my eye. That was my first instinct. I decided I needed to think outside of the box and shoot something a little bit different than I normally would.
This week, I photographed the artwork of my resident artist. It’s bright, colourful, and with my macro lens, you can see every little bit of texture in the paint. I photograph this sort of artwork all of the time, but hadn’t ever photographed it using a macro lens. It gave me an entirely new and beautiful perspective of her art. And, it’s colourful too… bright and cheerful just like her 🙂
Next up in our group is Christine Blaylock, an Illinois Photographer. Visit her site and see her interpretation of this week’s theme!
