Transcript of Elements & Principles of Art/Design: Line/Texture

What kinds of lines can we make?
Something that connects 2 points
Implied Lines
Lines which are not really there
For example… if there are rocks lined up in a row, our eye reads them as a line (even though its not really there)

Lines are not restricted just to objects… Light and shadows can also create lines
What image/objects will provide lines for you to photograph?
The tactile quality of an object
The surface of an object that can be felt and described
What kind of textures are there?
Texture is shown in photographs by the way light falls on an object.
On trees
On rocks
Close ups of objects
Painters use texture by applying thick layers of paint, or gouging a surface as a means to express mood or atmosphere.
Photographers use texture to describe an object’s surface quality and thereby better communicate an idea, message or theme.
Youth or old age
Hard or soft
It has the ability to attract and hold attention (provides interest)
Texture can be used to unify an image- the repetition of textured areas can help to “pull” a composition together
Can give the illusion of space
