My composites aim for reality so I don't use textures but I did look into my "Peripheral Folder" to see what I might use. The closest I come to Textures are my "Rocks" files. I take shots of decorative rocks, like a rock garden, also closeups of large boulders. If I needed some texture, I think I could find what I need there. If you'd like to see what I do with composites, go to Photographer52.com
I do that too Howard - take pictures of rocks for texture. Living in an area famous for its stone, there are plenty of opportunities, as there are on the beaches here. But it’s ‘made from scratch’ that’s taking my interest at the moment (although, as usual, I’m not getting much time to try it). Good to have a look through your composites, you have done some nice work. Thanks for your thoughts on it all, they are appreciated.
