Natural Texture



You know I don't use textures very often, but I couldn't resist sharing this one. Just as the title says, it's a natural texture. Here are the steps I followed to achieve this warm, vintage look...
  • waited for evening light
  • took camera from the air-conditioned house outside into oppressive heat and humidity
  • lens fogged over
  • cleaned lens
  • lens fogged over
  • cleaned lens
  • lens fogged over
  • just focused and clicked
  • tah-dah...natural texture!
Both of these images are straight out of the camera. I did nothing but add a frame!
 
 
I didn't know high humidity could make me so happy!

  5. Dreamy look - I've gone into the Botanic Garden Arboretum and had the same thing happen.

  7. This happened to me once at sunrise as I was shooting a highly-reflective building - and I LOVED the results! And it works wonderfully with your images - creating a magical, ethereal quality that really enhances these floral beauties.

  8. such a funny description! it HAS been beastly hot and humid lately, hasn't it? today though it's beautiful with winds out of the north and practically non-existent humidity. but maybe humidity isn't such a bad thing if it produces such lovely photos like yours. ; )
