19 Elegant Images Of Silk


Silk is one of the most cherished materials known to men. The shimmering appearance of silk is due to the prism-like structure of the silk fiber, which allows silk cloth to refract the light at different angles.

If you're into abstract photography, silk and similar materials have great potential as either subjects or backgrounds for your photographs. Silk comes in various colors and not every piece of silk will have the same type of sheen, which will provide you with a great variety.

In case raw silk is not available to you, feel free to experiment with satin or velvet. They also have a pretty sheen and can add a dash of elegance and dreaminess to your photos.

Check out the following 19 stylish images of silk – I hope they will inspire you to do a similar photoshoot on your own.
