Photography Cool texture

How to create a cool background texture in 3 easy steps

1. Find a river

Dambovita, Cristian -Kit- Paul, Bucharest, 2005.

A river or a lake on a windy day—water with small waves.

2. Find a building

River texture, Cristian -Kit- Paul, Bucharest, 2005.

A building reflecting in the river/lake, that is. More lines in the architecture, more intricate the texture. A sunny day helps.

3. Shoot the water

River texture—detail, Cristian -Kit- Paul, Bucharest, 2005.

Shoot that building's reflection in water. Play with the picture, change the colors, get crazy if you feel the urge.

Photography Burst

Future, Cristian -Kit- Paul, Bucharest, 2007.

Boston from Top of the Hub, Cristian -Kit- Paul, Boston, 2005.

While playing with the pictures above (large on black here and here), I thought about writing something about the melding past and future, about time stretching like a grotesque accordion, freaking enormous and grossly out of tune.

Until I saw the glistering white tops. One in the painting and one in the picture. I stopped in bewilderment, trying to get my mind around this like when you bite off more than you can chew—choking, unable to move jaw, unable to spit all out.

I shot these pictures thousands of kilometers and a couple of years apart. Fucking long accordion!
