Weekly Photo Challenge: Geometry

on November 3, 2012

From WordPress:  Geometry. This challenge is about the shapes and rhythms that make up the geometry of our world. Many photographs of any genre have an underlying sense of geometry, but I often like to make this the main subject of my work. I think it’s the most important aspect of a photograph’s success. This could be the patterns of the natural world up close and personal, or the rhythm of your local buildings. The above photograph, “Positive Negative,” depicts the Paula Rego Museum in Lisbon where the sky created an equally strong element of the composition as the building. The image has a totemic quality, softened by the passing cloud. I had waited for this cloud to move into the perfect position within the frame. The colour, light, and form of the image emphasize this geometry.

Share a photo that means GEOMETRY to you!

Tip: Once you have found a good subject that contains an interesting geometry, try to crop tightly into the subject to make an unexpected composition. Your goal should be to create an abstract composition so the image is more about underlying shapes than a literal representation of the subject matter itself — by doing this you create art rather than a snapshot.

I love this topic!!  I have dozens of photos to choose from, mostly because I also love architecture.  Angles in buildings fascinate me.  I took these during the summer while walking around downtown Knoxville.

  1. Excellent photos! When you love architecture it is easy to have a stash of these kinds of photos. One of the best things about the photo challenge is having an excuse to look through them – again!
