Jude is hosting a “20/20 Photo Challenge” (here are the assignments). Each month she sets a new theme and gives tips about what to look for. Last month the theme was “composition”, this month it is “patterns”.
“This month we are going to look at Patterns. Patterns can be found everywhere, in nature or man-made constructions. For a photographer, using patterns is key to a good composition.
Each week Jude sets a new assignment and this week is the final week’s assignment for February. Next month it will be using textures…
This month’s final assignment – Use pattern as a background for a more substantial subject.
I love New Zealand’s clean, green landscape and the pattern of these rolling hills are a compliment and background to the solid form and contrasting colour of the sheep. At the end of our street is Pelican Lake and the delicate leaves of the gum tree are outlined against the dramatic pattern of the clouds as the sun sets below the horizon.
Well what do you think, have I followed Jude’s brief ? Or are the backgrounds not really what you would class as patterns?
Jude has shown us some interesting examples, take a look, I do like her Kea bird.
