Finding Textures Everywhere

Every now and then I will layer a texture somewhere in my photo. I don’t do it very often, but I will try it on occasion. One thing that I like to do is to go out and collect textures. I have a file on my computer where they sit waiting for me to have the muse strike to put one into a photo. I think that I like to collect the textures more than I do using them. I say that I go out to collect them, but they usually are found when I am not looking for them. I am photographing something else, and I come across a texture that I think that I could use. As I was flying over a freshly plowed field I realized that it was the perfect texture to use in a photo. I may never use it, but it was fun setting up the shot to make this file.

More Textures Than I Know What To Do With

One thing that I loved about the drone was that it was a new way to collect textures. Instead of going around with the camera near my face doing it I was hundreds of feet in the air collecting textures. When you pull away from the ground you start to notice these things everywhere. One thing that I have found is that I have really upped my rate of collecting textures. I like the idea of taking a texture from the air and using it on a photo that I made underneath it on the ground. At some point I hope to use either of these in that way. Who knows if it will ever happen, but I have the files waiting for that day.
