Patterns are everywhere

PATTERNS CAN MAKE POWERFUL IMAGES. THEY APPEAR IN SURPRISING PLACES

If they have strong colour so much the better. The eye loves the effect of patterns, they can be intoxicating and beautiful. Sometimes they are buildings, sometimes people, other times landscapes. In this case a shelf of scarves in a Moroccan souk

Once you spot a potential pattern, take a moment and look at the different ways you can approach the shot. Do you want a few dramatic repeats or a number of small repeating elements? They can look very different. Also, do you want the pattern to appear symmetrical or asymmetric? Should the shot include other elements to provide the pattern with context? These are all considerations worth pondering before deciding on your final composition.
