This month we are looking at textures. While the structure of an object is its form, the material from which it is made constitutes its texture. Is it hard or soft, smooth or rough? You are aiming at translating texture visually, bringing life and energy to a photo through shape, tone and colour. Study the texture and forget about the object. Texture becomes the subject here.
This month’s final assignment – Get close to your subject and capture just the texture itself, without the context. Then Zoom out so that you capture both the context of the texture as well as the texture itself.
March has gone and the less said about it the better. Late afternoon, now the weather has cooled down, I go for my solitary walk around the block. I tiptoe past this gruesome creature that dwells just down the street.
But last night I took the camera as I thought it would be a perfect subject for this final, March assignment of Jude’s Photo Challenge.
This is where he hangs out. A Magnificent stand of Paperbark trees.I carried on and crossed the dog park. At this time of evening it is usually packed with people and their dogs socialising. Not now…Even sadder is the newly renovated and upgraded children’s playground, now out of bounds. Deserted.But it is all waiting and eventually life will return to some sort of normal. In the meantime keep busy.
Go over and get hung up on Jude’s interpretation this week.
