Wildflower season has been in full swing for several weeks now in Arizona. The temperatures have been 10 to 15 degrees (fahrenheit) above normal this spring and the rattlesnakes have been everywhere! As much as I love photographing wildflowers, my fear of rattlesnakes has kept me out of the desert.
Contemplating on where my photography is going and where to shoot next, I have been enjoying the digital darkroom. Textured photography can be debated whether it is photography or digital art, but that’s not what this post is about. Instead, below is a gallery of textured photography images. Several have been in previous posts while others are new. The second image, Desert Trees in Fog, was originally published as a split-tone image in my post Sonoran Desert Fog, but it didn’t depict how I felt that morning walking through the dense fog. Now it has been re-worked as a color image with layers of texture to portray my feelings and visualization while I was making the photo.
You can click on any of the images below to start a slide show and see the images in a larger version. Regardless of whether they are photographs or digital art, I hope you enjoy my gallery of textured photography images!
