Recently I have started taking interest in the theory of photography in order to improve my photography skills. I am focussing on learning different concepts and am following Brenda’s posts on “photo studies”. Brenda has explained “rhythm” with variety of photos including repetitive and non repetitive components in a photo and even included Ted’s video on rhythm in visual composition.
In this post I am presenting my understanding of rhythm ( just like rhythm in music). To start with there are photos with repeated patterns found in nature and in man made designs.
The rhythm in these photos is related to a specific pattern. Next I want to see photos without repetition. In such cases by using a rhythmic element we present the mood or the flow. We feel the movement when we see waves or flowing water or a picture of a road gives us a sense of rhythm.
I would love to hear your comments. Please share your knowledge of rhythm.
Next challenge would be to find rhythm in a minimal setting. But one thing at a time.
