Patterns denote a certain regularity – repeating designs or behaviors.
I have noticed l have a tendency to fall into a photographic pattern. It hit me while going through my photos one day. Whether shooting portraits, landscapes or even editorial I become comfortable with what has worked in the past and tend to repeat it- same poses, settings, subjects.
It can be difficult but fun to try and break out of patterns, try a different angle, a new lens, different settings, new pose, etc.
I am naturally drawn to certain subjects, and I find making a conscious effort to look at them from a different angle or focusing on a smaller part of the whole, keeps me from falling into a familiar pattern.
To a week of breaking patterns.
