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 30 images.

Final Product: Turn in 2 Images and a proofsheet 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).

•Do a screenshot of your proofsheet.
•Write your name, period number and Repetition on your proofsheet.

•Save your images as:
P#yourlastname_repetition1
P#yourlastname_repetition2
P#yourlastname_repetition3 (this is your proofsheet)
•Submit your photos with a rubric in the correct period# "Repetition" folder.


SHOOTING TIPS:

Fill the frame • Get close to your subjects • Your photos will be more interesting if you have a "focal point" (an object or something of interest to contrast against the background and to hold your eye) in the composition. 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...
