Picture This! – Our Next Assignment
As photographers we walk around with eyes wide open for potential compositions, plays of color and light, and classic forms that attract our eye. One of those classic compositional gambits is the recognition of and framing of patterns. These can be found patterns, still life setups you make yourself, or just an unusual gathering of objects that just happen to form a pattern that catches your eye. This photo of dockside kayaks in Alaska was made with a Canon EOS 30D and a Canon 35mm lens with an exposure of f/5.6 at 1/160 sec.
