35 36 Art Beyond the Lens Backgrounds How light and dark ­backgrounds work differently You have now seen just how effective the use of negative space can be for providing a clear destination for textured layers. Extending on this, let’s take a closer look at backgrounds. Whether I’m ­photographing still life or taking portraits in the park, my background will play a vital role in the effectiveness of my selected textures when I begin processing. The reason my background is important is that different textures work ­differently once layered over a light or dark background.

This is perhaps the “purest” use of textures and demonstrates with full effect the balance that is required between texture and subject. In this instance, textures are very much ­apparent and are allowed to shine in all their glory. Backgrounds Working with bokeh Bokeh is the Japanese term for blur, and blur comes in an array of delightful effects. We all love the sparkling jewels of sun flare bokeh through to the creamy soft blurs found in the gradients that fall just outside of focus. Bokeh works just like negative space and plain backgrounds, creating a wonderful anchor for textural creativity.

So the secret is to take the edge off my selected texture first by giving it a subtle blur. This simple trick throws my textural overlay into my composition so that it no longer looks as if it has been placed on the surface. Blurring textures creates the illusion that they are further back in my composition than those areas that remain sharp, and in focus. This simple, yet effective trick supports the beautiful depth of field that I’ve achieved through my initial image capture. 47 I use strong textures to add roughness to those creamy blurs, obliterate halos and steep gradients.
