Pattern & Contrast : Broken Patterns

Welcome to Week Twenty-Three of p52.2 : Framed.

Last week, we sought patterns to bring a sense of rhythm and harmony to our photos.However, patterns on their own can feel somewhat lacking – patterns can set a scene, but do not really create a point of interest to hold the viewer’s gaze.Breaking the pattern in an unexpected way can add the tension and vitality that transforms a scene from interesting to captivating. Our attention is riveted to object or person that disturbs the pattern, and the properties of the pattern itself are accentuated by the interruption.
Our year-long collaborative blog project is dedicated to composition and artistry.
