NYC4PA Call for Entry: PATTERNS and SHADOWSTheme: PATTERNS and SHADOWS

The city in the early morning or late afternoon presents an intensified visual as the buildings, the cars and even the pedestrians present with long deep shadows. Look more closely at the buildings at any time of day and note the patterns in architecture, windows, etc.  This call is all about images where the visual impact stems from shadows or repetitive shapes/patterns. Opportunities are endless. Consider the pattern in rows of theater seats, late afternoon light on steps transforming it into repeated black and white stripes, your own shadow or that of an athlete sprinting in the park in the early hours.

PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS FOR YOU:
Patterns can be found everywhere in our world, from natural forms to our urban and industrial environments. Use them effectively in an image and you’ll create a photo that is dynamic and attracts the eye to the main subject or focal point. It will help you learn digital photography in interesting ways. There are two ways to look at patterns. Take a bird’s eye view and look down on say a car park where you’ll see predictable rows of vehicles. Then the other way is to get in closer and look for not so obvious patterns like tire treads and grill patterns. If you really want to be successful in shooting a pattern make sure that you fill the whole frame so that the pattern extends form edge to edge.
