Repetition of Shape Assignment

Repetition of shape is a compositional technique photographers frequently use to make compelling images. Multiple shapes, lines or spots can create a pattern that adds interest and unites the elements in a scene.

 

What to do: Find a series of repeating objects or shapes and use different angles to fill the frame with the repeating patterns.

Final Product: Turn in 2 Images on separate slides showing repetition of shape • Shoot at least 40 images total.

After you have PICKED your TWO BEST images:

•correct the tonal values of the photos using “curves” (command+M) or “levels” (command+L).

•put each image on a colored background.

•put borders or a drop shadow around each image.

•include your name, period number and “Repetition” at the top of the slide

•save your imagess as:
P#yourlastname_repetition1
P#yourlastname_repetition2
 

 

SHOOTING TIPS • Fill the frame • Get close to your subjects. • Use different

depth of field settings and or different angles to make your images more interesting.

 

Things to photograph: Shapes, lines, objects, fences, buildings, textures, people –any repeating shape or pattern…
