LINES AND PATTERNS
Repeating lines and elements can create striking compositions by harnessing the brain’s natural attraction to patterns. Something that might be overlooked becomes interesting when it is framed to highlight the pattern. Vertical repeating lines portray a mood of confidence, permanence and height, like trees and tall buildings, while horizontal lines tend to promote calm and relaxation, like horizons and gentle waves. Including an interruption to the pattern can create an element of surprise that keeps the viewer’s eye moving back and forth around the photo.
