Weekly theme 3rd September 2018 - Repetition

(Helen Hooker) #1

Happy Monday, everyone - I hope you’ve all had a fantastic week. Let’s crack on and get going with the new week’s theme.

This week’s theme is Repetition

Repetition can be a very powerful photographic tool. There’s something very satisfying about repeating patterns in their simplest form. These repeating windows, shot by Lorenzo Spoleto, offer endless details to enjoy as your eye explores the frame.

Sometimes you can use repetition to lead your viewer’s eye into the picture - an alternative to leading lines, as Jacek Reszko has here with these old, dusty bottles.

Of course, there are plenty of examples of repetition to be found in nature. I love the way Fabrizio Conti has captured these lush, green leaves, using a shallow depth of field to focus our eyes on the delicate patterns.

So there are a few ideas to get your started - now it’s your turn to go out and be creative with repetition!

Winner of the last theme

Last week’s industrial theme brought some wonderful contributions - thank you to everyone who participated. It would seem @peterphotowalks is on something of a roll at the moment as his entry was the winner for the second week in a row - congratulations Peter!

Having been late posting for last week’s theme, I thought I’d strike while the iron’s hot this week. This is one of the sunflowers in our garden - I love the way the seeds curl around in repeating curves.

In this temple were fore sure a thousand small buddha images on the wall. In architecture and architectural sculpture is quite a lot of repetition.

Noticed the curved lines on the old roof behind the house.

This is a coloured wicker basket that I keep in my kitchen and store vegetables like onions and potatoes in it. I absolutely love the bamboo patterns on it :slight_smile:

This was the first time me trying this Lee filter. Even though the repetitions are not that visible, I think the smoothed clouds and water give them some emphasis. Enjoy!
