Patterns and repetition
I decided to take a break today from techniques and tools and “how-to” and just talk about pictures. I take a lot of people pictures, landscapes, flowers, cityscapes, pets. But I try to keep my eyes open for patterns. Patterns occur in nature and there are lots of manmade patterns. So I’m just going to show you some pictures I shot over past few years and hope that these give you some ideas of things to shoot.
This first one is one of my most popular pictures on smugmug. It is just a street vendor display case on the streets of New York City.
Crayons, chalk, pencils – all make good subjects.
Farmers markets always provide a good source of pattern pictures.
Food works when it’s inside too.
Shopping? Bring your camera along.
And of course Mother Nature provides us with an endless supply of patterns.
And finally, look for patterns in the things we make.
Well I hope that will give you some ideas.
