I believe there are three different categories of Texture images: detail, dramatic and informational.
Images with a dramatic focus use texture as a component of the image. The texture offers a relationship between or among subjects.
With informational images, texture offers the viewer a context or helps tell a story.
For detail images, the key is a focus on particular aspects of a subject that are seen on its surface, without drama. The final image may be abstract. It is not critical that the object be identifiable; though a caption or title can do that.
My favorite sort of texture image the capture of closeup detail. Tight closeups let me imagine how it would feel to touch what I see. I have noticed that some photographers do a lot of post-processing on their images and superimpose textures–as image layers–onto their images. Presently, I am an image purist. If I don’t see a texture within the original image, I’m not compelled to add one in.
