Always on the lookout for textures

Posted: January 21, 2016 in Uncategorized
I was at one of the local parks near my home and came across this tower that sends electrical power through the area, and saw the paint on the metal was starting to ripple creating some nice texture.  I never pass anything without checking it out, where as many macro photographers pass by a subject like this figuring there is nothing there worth shooting.



The bolts add some extra interest along with the textures.  Here is the original image out of the camera.



I used “Smart Photo Editor” to add a little color and pull out the textures, and make it feel more artistic. I am hoping to have my post processing videos for sale in the next month.

    Interesting subject. What lens were you using?

    Hi Mike,

    Another unique peak from the Teensie Peek Meister. Old paint is rich, like old faces. BTW you featured me a while back. Again, my thanks!

    Here’s something fun to shoot, shaving lather. Tried it? Barbasol is the thickest. Dollar Tree. I lit both front and backlit, using flashlights and red a laser pointer. The foam is endlessly creative ‘cause you can spray it in a gadzillion ways, anything from a wee albino poop-pile to a mini sandworm.

    Kind regards,

    Glenn Putman
