Texture of the Soul

When considering textures I decided that nothing could compare to the majesty and mystery of the human brain. It is an astounding complex creation that contains the sum of an individual's life and learning experiences. It contains an real time record of every site, sound, smell, touch, image, and experience. All this combines to make each person universally unique and valuable. And yet in moment it is all erased and can never be restored. Thank you so much to Dr. John Patrickson and the Morehouse School of Medicine for this rare and astounding experience. Visit the Wikipedia article on the brain and really consider if there is any rational defense of such a masterpiece of design happening by chance. At the end I put on gloves and handled the magnificent creations and found myself almost without words. This was someone, everything they were, everything they knew, and now they are gone.

Texture in photography refers to how the surfaces of your subject(s) look. They can be rough, smooth, patterned, ripped, torn, rippled, speckled, soft, etc. Textures are all around us, and it is going to be difficult to choose which texture to shoot. Just think of curly hair, steel utensils, rusted poles, weathered fences, river rocks, wrinkled skin, fallen leaves, and millions more items. The stronger the contrast between the lighter and darker elements of your subject, the more texture your subject will have. You can also play with the direction of the light to enhance textures. Strong light coming from the side will help to create more contrast and so more textures. Consider using a tripod because you usually want to capture as much detail as you can. More detail means a higher aperture which means a slower shutter speed and potential camera shake. Thus the need for a tripod.
