Rhythm and Pattern

This exercise is about rhythm and pattern, both are related to repetition, but whereas rhythm has to do with movement of the eye across a picture, pattern is more static. 151 more words


Real and Implied Triangles

For this exercise the challenge is to create or find real and implied triangles. The diagonals in a triangle can add movement and dynamism to a photo, and depending on which way the triangle points it can either add stability or instability (if the triangle is in an irregular orientation). 400 more words


Implied Lines

The first part of this exercise involves analysing two photographs in the workbook and identifying implied lines. I have included the images below with red arrows to indicate where I think the major implied lines are. 291 more words



Curves can also lead the eye into a photo and can be more pleasing to the eye than strict diagonals. Curves can come in different shapes, the most common are the C and the S curves. 168 more words



In this exercise I was looking for diagonals.  Diagonals can lead the eye into a photograph and give a sense of perspective. The first photo is one of the more common natural diagonals around us, a staircase. 205 more words


Horizontal and Vertical Lines

Horizontal lines tend to introduce a feeling of stability to an image, especially if the line creates a boundary of contrast, e.g. a horizon. Repeated horizontal lines can become a feature in and of itself. 335 more words
