Texture photos

Venice, Italy
Cyndi Lavin, 2008

I use photo images in so much of my work that my camera has become my most essential tool. Even when we went to Italy, I spent a certain amount of time just simply shooting things that would make interesting texture shots. Most of these are less interesting as compositions than they are in terms of how they can be used in the future: backgrounds or elements of a collage, a layer in a digital piece, warped and Photoshopped into something else…

Do you spend time shooting elements for later use too?
