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:

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

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