The other day at work we had to come up with a background for a comp, and not finding anything else we liked I culled through my own photos to find an image. We did not use this image after all, but I like it anyway. While initially creating the backgrounds I had my photographer state of mind in action and so they did not quite suit our purpose (too dark). Eventually we went with something “brighter” and “more optimistic.” It prompted a discussion at work about adding texture to photographs to de-digitize them. Beyond that, this image is a very tight crop of the full picture, a method I’ve started to work with. Can you tell what it is?
