8 Visual Elements: Texture

There are 8 primary visual elements that make up a well-taken photo in terms of content from a technical standpoint. This introductory photo project aims to teach students to look for these elements within the viewfinder to capture them for the rest of us. The purpose in completing the visual element assignments is to study the basic elements of visual design and to appreciate how they work so that students can improve their understanding of good composition.
