Textures come in all shapes and sizes, from bubbles on the water to the way sand lays on the beach. I used a Canon 700D with a 70-200mm f/2.8 and an 18-135 f/3.5-5.6 lenses to capture my photos and edited them in Lightroom.
The first photo was taken in the morning, right after we arrived to the river bank in Bundanon. I saw the bubbles on the edge of the water and thought that it would be a really cool texture. I took it from a very high angle looking straight down, as I wanted the bubbles to fill the entire frame. In post, sharpening and vignetting were added to highlight the middle.
I took the second photo at the same place and at the same time. The wind was blowing towards me, creating small waves on otherwise still water. A very high shutter speed was used, because I didn’t want to have any motion blur in the photo. I drew on the colours and removed a few air bubbles in the post.
The third photo was also taken at the same time. After I took two of my pictures at the beach, I only saw it fitting to take the third one there too. I used a very low angle and a low f-stop to have the sand fill the entire frame, while only having one dune in focus. In post, I added a little bit of contrast and a vignette, to guide the viewer’s eye towards the middle, where everything was in focus.
