8-10-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture 3 (Hudson Edition)

Now you didn’t think I would leave this challenge without at least one shot of The Hudson, did you? The texture in this picture is both from the river and from a very simple technique of slow shutter speed, 1/15 of a second, and a simple rotation of the camera body.

8-9-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture 2

I went to see the Old 97s (set photos here) and The Devil Makes Three (set photos there) at Lincoln Center Out Of Doors today. During the Old 97s set I took this shot that I think hits the texture mark. A note on technique. I turned the photo black and while and added a little sepia tone in Lightroom.

8-8-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture

This weeks challenge is: Texture. (You knew that)

A little change in ISO and a little change in shutter speed certainly changes the texture of the water in Blackfish Creek.

ISO 6400 – f/5.3 – Shutter: 1/2 second

ISO 140 – f/5.6 – Shutter 15 seconds

A world of textural difference

Travel Theme: Texture – Take 2 – 9-19-12

 

Before the week ended I thought I would take another crack at Ailsa’s Travel Theme this week (Texture).

These are old pictures and have been scanned. One in particular was very dirty but it actually adds to the theme.

Let’s start in Quetzaltenago (Xela), Guatemala. Summer of 1993.

Then move to Phoenicia New York in the fall of 1994.

And let us end our little textural journey on a mountain road in Ireland in 2005.

 

Travel Theme:Texture — 9-15-12

Texture: That is Ailsa travel theme this week.  This is one at which I may very well take several passes. (Can’t be ending a sentence with a proposition, can I grammar mavens?).

When I think texture, I immediately think of the river.  I could do a whole month of posts (or a book), just charting its textural changes from source to mouth but two will do for the day. In honor of the theme, I worked on these two photographs more than I normally do.
