Add a little texture
Any surface that’s not perfectly sheen and has deviations in the form of patterns, or contours is a textured surface and can be used to create stunning photographs. There is a fine line between textures and patterns. When viewed from a distance, the shapes that make a pattern grow less important whereas a texture is formed because of the overall impression of the pattern’s surface. The texture of a leafs veins, the rough texture of a bark of a tree, surface of a pond indentations from a leaf or a twig, abrasive sand surface are all examples of textures.
