Texture Thursdays ~02.16.12~

David Williams Photography

Brandon on his blog “When This Becomes There” posted an >>image<< with a texture applied last week and it was suggested starting a “Texture Thursdays” theme…I am totally game! Here’s my first Texture Thursday post. 😀

Staying with the urban/street theme, here’s a shot of some stairs with two textures applied…whatcha think?

  1. So it’s on! Really like this one, David. The texture specs in the top right gives it a bit of cinematic quality for me, like those grainy slow shots in a war movie…if that makes any sense. I’ve been terribly swamped this week, but I’m hoping to squeeze in a texture tonight.

  2. I also use textures in some of my images and have gone on to create my own for use. Textures can totally change an image and in one case I’ve used them to help recover an image with over-exposed sky. By texturing what would probably have been a throw-away I got something reasonable. Well I thought it was.

    Good luck with the textures, there a great group on Flickr called Textures4Layers, well worth the visit if you haven’t already seen them.


    • Hi Mike, thank you for the comment. Lately, as I’ve been wandering out my photo adventures, I’ve been paying closer attention to different textures with the intent of using the capture image for any future textured applications! It’s been…interesting! Thank you for the tip on the Flickr group, I’ll check em out for sure. 😀

  3. Did you do post-process with some scratches? Or Is it the lens itself? Either way, it looks great! The scratches add to the feel of the image.

    • Hi there, the scratches and “spots” are from one textured layer, the other layer was of the hand writing. While in post, I wasn’t so sure about the hand writing but it’s so subtle, just that tiny hint, that I think it totally works. Thank you for your comment as well as for your question, glad you liked it! 😀
