When Texture Tells You the Story

Written by Nasrul Eam

Just like a painter, an experienced photographer always tries to look beyond the obvious in a subject, to draw the attention of the viewers, so that they spend more time with it. It is the texture in a photograph that takes one close to the composition, as if it can be felt or how it feels if touched. Texture is the tactile quality of the surface of an object. It presents the viewer with an even more intense experience of your work.

Looking at this lonely flower lying on a bench, warm and cool tones mix together to reveal texture and color, takes us to a much deeper level of feeling. You can almost feel its fading petals, melancholy of a forgotten beauty laying here in negligence. This is what texture does; it draws us in so we spend more time with the work.

In this guide, we have got you covered by explaining how artists see texture in art and introduce you to the art of revealing texture with skill.
