Some of the most powerful compositions are found when the photographer can identify repetitious objects or shapes. Such repetition exists both in nature and in the human-made world. (A stack of bottles, a line of windows etc).
Here are a few examples of repetitious photographs to give you inspiration:Some ideas:
• close up of dog fur • row of windows • patterns in high rise windows • rows of plants in a garden • slats of a fence • a baking tray of cupcakes
Rural / Urban Decay
Urban/Rural decay is the process whereby a previously functioning building near a city or an abandoned village to farms and crofts falls into disrepair. It's essentially the art of capturing beautiful photographs of a subject that is inherently not beautiful.
Macro / Close up
It is generally understood to mean any photo that shows the subject closer and in more detail than we’re used to seeing in everyday life.
