Geirangerfjord, Norway, and Photography Lesson No. 3: Texture

Geirangerfjord, Norway, from Dalsnibba Plateau (Aug. 2008).

This photo has nothing to do with my completion of Photography Lesson No. 3, but I wanted to share it anyway. Last night, as I went through some of my old trip photos, it stopped me in my tracks. It is one of my favorites. I hope you enjoy it, too.


If you’ve been following my blog from the beginning, you’ll have seen Photo Lesson No. 1: Shape and Photo Lesson No. 2: Form. Photo Lesson No. 3 is all about TEXTURE.

Texture is the visual interpretation of objects’ tactile surface characteristics.  For the following categories, take a photograph capturing texture.

Almudaina Grounds, Palma, Mallorca, Spain (Feb. 2012).

Contrasting textures: Mine has rough (rocks), smooth (plant), and fuzzy (moss)

Composition in texture (where texture is reduced almost to pattern):

Up next: Pattern.

    Wow, that is an impressive valley! Is that a road winding down the view? Did you drive on it? I find it terrifying. Cute ladybug. Are you getting these choose up shots with a point and shoot?

    • That is a road and we did drive on it in a big coach all the way from that teeny body of water down there where our cruise ship was anchored. It was terrifying, especially when other coaches were traveling in the other direction.
