“Patterns are to photography, what Rhythm is to music.” ~Tedric Garrison
Do you purposefully set out to look for pattern when photographing?
I certainly don’t, but if I do see one then it almost always catches my eye.
I know I’m constantly learning more about photography, so I’ve decided that each time I post a composition prompt, I’ll also post a few links to some relevant reading.
Here’s a round up for ‘pattern’:
- A 10 Step Guide to Understanding and Utilising Pattern
- Repetition and Patterns in Photography
- 50 Dazzling Images of Patterns
- Using Repetition and Patterns in Photography
- Patterns in Nature photo gallery from National Geographic
Want to know where you can share your ‘pattern’ photo?
Facebook: Create an album (title suggestion – My Weekend Photo Project) and upload your photos (and don’t forget to add the hashtag #twpp now that FB does hashtags). You can make your album public so that anyone can have a look at your photos or you can share your photos with me over on my biz page.
Your blog: Upload your photos to your blog and share them with the wide world. Leave a link here so that others can follow the snail-trail.
Flickr: Share your photos at The Weekend Photo Project.
Pinterest: If you’re on Pinterest create a board for your weekend photos. Don’t forget to add the tag #twpp so that others can search for them. I have a The Weekend Photo Project Pinterest board that I’m going to invite people to pin on. If you’d love to be involved, follow the board and I’ll send you an invite!
Instagram: Snap a photo with you phone or i-device and upload your photo to Instagram. You’ll find me here on Instagram. Don’t forget to add #twpp to your caption. Proceed to share!
Twitter: Use Instagram, link to your Pinterest board or your blog. And remember to add #twpp as your hashtag.
Anywhere else you like: I’m sure I’ve left out others ways of sharing, so leave a comment below and let everyone know where your photos will be!
Be sure and leave a comment below to let me (and everyone else) know where you’ll be sharing your photos. Visit other peoples photos. Like them. Comment.
And please, share The Weekend Photo Project. The more people we can get involved, the more fun it will be.
Don’t forget that the prompts are open to interpretation – there is no right or wrong photo – just the photo you make of your world as you see it.
