Project 2: Textures

Deliverable: 1 contact sheet and three best shots.
Objective: Learn to pay attention to your environment and photograph interesting textures.

Use the macro mode or aperture priority mode to control the f-stop and create a shallow depth of field. Also, changing your perspective might be a desirable way to show the texture and create depth. If the lighting is even which makes the texture look flat, create your own shadows by using your phone's light and move it to an angle of the texture. (
