Playing with Texture

Here are some photographs of my nieces (and one faux-niece) I took a week or so back. More to come later of a lot more family).

I've been attempting to play with texture to make studio pictures more interesting... I've been seeing a lot of textures in editorial magazine photos lately, and I'd thought I give it a try. Still not sure about my technique... might be too much. Opinions?

I love the first one.

The second one I really love the texture itself but I am not sure about her hand placement. I think if it weren't for her hands it would be a good photo.

I first thought the third one was too much but after looking at it for a while I am not sure it is. I kind of like it. It would just depend on how and where it was being used or displayed.

I like the idea. Sometimes the white backdrops make the subject look as if they exist in a spaceless, timeless ether.

I LOVE the first one- it looks like it was done for a cool magazine. The second one I agree with you, but I would definitely experiment with layer masks more - maybe just the background could have texture instead of the entire thing? And the last one is cool!:) Awesome, Britta!

I like the first and third a lot! The third is very unique and would be a great unique senior photo! :)
