I've always loved textiles and it's interesting taking photos of such materials - seeing how the light, texture and different layers show up in your shots. The irregularities and coarseness that becomes apparent only add to the character of the piece.
These basic photos can also be manipulated with the simplest digital photo effects to create interesting results as shown in the related sets below. The more layers of effects you apply the more intricate and then unrecognisable from the original photo it becomes.
You don't need to buy an expensive program, just use the very basic tools in your photo saving and sharing file that came with your computer to make many different designs from just one photo.
Experiment with a copy of an original photo and have some fun!
