Project 52: Texture | Week 8

February 24, 2017  •  7 Comments

For Week Eight of professional pet photography blog circle Project 52 our theme is "texture." We were to show texture in our images. Mr. Bojangles and I headed to our favorite local park for our blog photo session, since I knew that we would get a lot of texture between Mr. Bojangles' fur and the bark of our favorite posing log. 

I edited the images two different ways this week, because I wanted a regular edit where the image is more soft (but still filled with texture) and one edit where I enhanced the texture, especially noticeable in Mr. Bojangles' scruffy fur.

The softer, natural edit. The enhanced texture edit. Again, the natural soft edit. And the enhanced texture edit. Which edit do you prefer? Let me know in the comments.

To see more texture, head over to see what Jodie from Pawtrait Purrfection, serving Pets and People in Ipswich, Australia, has for us, and then take a trip around the rest of the blog circle.

These are great! I do love the detail on the fur on the "enhanced texture" edits of Mr. Bojangles! Nicely done!
I really like the enhanced ones , Love your Mr BoJangles

For some strange reason, I could only see the second image. The others were blank. Perhaps this is only a problem with my browser. I am using Safari. Anyway I like what the enhanced edit does to the log and the pup's fur. Excellent use of contrasting textures.
I think I prefer the enhanced texture versions. I love being able to really see the detail of his fur.
The second photo is my favorite, and that tree log really is a great tool for shots like these. I really like photographing wire-haired dogs. Our Billie is a prime example.
