This week we begin a month-long study of patterns and contrasts. Patterns are defined loosely here as similar elements that are repeated numerous times. Patterns are all around us, but we may not notice them at a casual glance. Our goal this week is to train our eyes to spot patterns in the environment that can create visually interesting, harmonious backgrounds for our subjects. The patterns may be geometric or non-geometric; each may impart a different effect in our photographs. The photos we post from this exercise may simply be of the patterns themselves. Or, we may already incorporate subject placement as well.
Here is my take for this week. Please click here to see all the images in one place.
