Exercise: Rhythms & patterns
Click here to view album
I initially had a little difficultly getting my head around the difference between rhythm and pattern so I re-read the course material several times and shared some ideas with some other OCA students using the forums. My interpretation leading up to Assignment 2 is that rhythm need not have objects of exacting shape and proportions but instead lead the eye through or around the photograph to the ‘optical beat’. Pattern may have irregular shapes and tight framing is required to achieve the desired effect.
