- We're going to continue down the path of composition in photos. Yesterday we talked about Horizon Lines. Today, we're going to talk about the use of geometric shapes.
In this first photo storyboard, Teresa used the triangular painted walls to show off the fun side of a couples' combined personalities. The use of shapes can add elements of humor to photographs.
- In this photo, similar to Teresa's use of triangles, I used the huge drain pipes and their circular shapes to have a bit of fun with Nicole and Jason.
- We photographed Matt when he was horsing around during his family photo session. It created a big X of sorts, and he just climbed up.
- Repeated lines is another form of geometric shapes. Here we are using them with Kim and Scott during Christmas in Old Folsom.
- Geometric shapes are fun! And can be more than what you may think is the standard shape, such as circles, squares, or triangles. You can come up with a variety of shapes and sizes if you just are on the look out for a bit of unusual back drops. We'd love to see what you come up with!
