Picture Practice - Composition - Pattern/Repetition

Day 5 - Composition - Pattern/Repetition

While repetition in the humdrum of daily life can at times be a bit boring, capturing it in your photos can create an image with great impact. Life is filled with patterns, many of which we overlook due to the busyness of our days.  It takes being intentional and also some practice, however, once you get an eye for spotting them, you'll be amazed by what you see.
Patterns appear whenever strong graphic elements repeat themselves, for example, lines, geometric shapes, forms and colors.

A good tip for photographing patterns is to fill your frame with the subject. This removes all distractions from the image, focusing the viewers attention on the main subject.  Filling your frame with a repetitive pattern conveys the message of size and large numbers. The key to this is to get close enough to fill your frame and make it appear that the pattern is bursting out of the photo. Examples of this might be a brick wall, tiles, a row of bicycle wheels at the same angle or just about anything that repeats itself numerous times.
Pattern is all around us if we just look for it.
