Texture in Craftmanship Circa 1905


These elegant textures are from the inside of bank building in Havre de Grace, Maryland. The building was built in 1905 and safe around the same time. This was a period of industrial craftmanship done elegantly and precisely without any of the automated machines we have today. Look carefully and try to image the careful precision, each piece, shape, and swirl, done by hand.

Assignment:  We live in a three-dimensional world and are used to a world with depths and textures. We enjoy running our amazing sensitive fingers over a baby’s soft skin, petting a cat or dog or slipping into bed covered in freshly laundered sheets. Photos sometimes look ‘flat’ to us because we are so used to everything having some type of texture to it. Your challenge this week creative Framers is to add textures into the two-dimensional world of photography. Look for something (or someone) with texture and then pay close attention to how the light is accentuating it. Shoot at different angles and apertures and then decide which photo you how it would feel if you could only touch it. You will notice how your photos will come more ‘alive’ when you consciously made sure that there is texture in your photos. Our sense of sight experiences the world from a distance but our sense of touch brings the world up close and personal. This is a great way to make your photo even more relatable to your viewers. So let’s make a ‘touchy-feely’ album this week!
