Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture

Thanks to fortuitous timing, I got to go to the monthly Irvington Farmer’s Market during the week of the texture photo challenge. At the market, my photographer’s eye sees texture in every direction. Striated corn husks, whole grain dog biscuits, textiles, glass crafts….for me it’s all about the visual smorgasbord.

    1. First of all, I really have to try the Indian Butter Chicken recipe!

      Second, as far as photography, I pay attention most closely to color and focal point. Color is greatly affected by the light source, and I can usually bring out the color I see with my eye by changing the white balance setting on my camera. I played with this for a long time in sunlight, lamp-light, and every light in between. It takes some practice to find the settings that make the photo match your vision. (With my Android camera, I do a little more cheating with the filter settings in Pixlr!)

      As for focal point, I like large aperture settings (4, 5, or 5.6) that keep subjects at a specific distance in focus, while everything else is out of focus. This can really draw attention to your subject, if that’s what you’re trying to do. Again, I play around a lot with different settings to see the effect it has on the images. Thank goodness for digital cameras!

      Thanks for the comment, happy blogging!
