Just shot some stuff in Malta and the walls and buildings have so much texture but on viewing the one light TK, I was unimpressed with how the texture translated to film.

Does anyone light textured walls in a specific way to add depth (we used noon sunlight - with no fill) or should I stop worrying and let the TK op crunch the look

This shot from Jan's video has a great textured wall - in the first shot

You need raking light to bring out texture, combined with enough contrast. Assuming your light wasn't too flat, adding more contrast with color-correction should help. Shooting detail shots help too, sometimes in shallow-focus as that commercial did.

You also need enough inherent resolution in order to, well, resolve fine detail.

I agree , thanks David

I am also beginning to suspect that color seperation is required on textured layers to enhance the depth

thanks
