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. Shoot at least 40 images.

Final Product: Turn in 2 Images on separate slides showing repetition of shape.


After you have PICKED your TWO BEST images:

•Correct the brightness of the photos using “curves” (command+M) or “levels” (command+L).

•Put each image on a colored background.

•Put borders or a drop shadow (use the stroke pallet) around each image.

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

•Save your images 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 patttern...
