Photo class and texture

manzanita texture

Cupcakefaerie and I recently took a basic photography class to learn more about digital SLR cameras and general settings. It was only 3 weeks and 4 sessions but there was a whole lot of learning going on on my end. And now I want to practice so I don’t forget (because I know how easy that is to do).

One of the assignments was to focus on lines shapes and textures. I have always been fascinated by the shedding habits of the manzanita bush. We’ve got quite a lot of it in our dry hills. I love how it sheds in such perfect curls and its underlayer is so perfectly smooth.

This was taken about 12:30 on a white hot day. Camera: Nikon D50
