Wild Textures

Leopard fur

In the wild exists an array of patterns. The wrinkles of an elephant, the rosettes of a leopard, the stripes of a tiger. These swirling lines entrance all those who observe them. They represent nature’s great artistry. 

It is the lasso of creativity that ensnares new visions for photography.

Tiger fur

The idea of photographing these markings was inspired by the work of Sudhir Shivram. An Indian wildlife photographer, he had done a similar compilation. His images are a must-see for all nature enthusiasts (check out his work here).

Advancing in any artistic pursuit is inevitably inspired by emulating the experts. It is through replication that one discovers their voice and style. Imitation begets uniqueness. As long as you credit your inspiration, you can use this technique to develop as an artist.

It is the lasso of creativity that ensnares new visions for photography. These constellations of colours are all around us. Photographing them in this novel manner casts a new light on them.
