Project 52-12-9: Patterns
Posted By: djb47, 02-26-2024, 06:01 AM

Welcome to Project 52-12, a weekly challenge using a set list of themes and concepts published in advance. The themes can be subject as well as technique oriented.
You may begin your Project 52 at any time, not just at the beginning of the year. The goal is simple -- take one photo a week for 52 weeks for the given theme. Project 52-12
is hosted by one member continuously throughout the year but every week's challenge is judged by the winner of the previous week. Photos can be taken with any camera.

Rules

1. Anyone and everyone who is interested is eligible. The goal is to have fun and share comments, concepts, insights, and techniques with fellow Pentaxians.
2. Each week will feature a theme or a photographic technique for you to explore.
3. Post a single picture in the Project 52 thread for that week. Explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme.
4. Some post-processing is OK but try to stay away from heavily PP'ed images. Keep the creativity to photographic techniques and the captures themselves.
5. Since this project is about technique and not camera, shots taken by non Pentax cameras are allowed. Cameras can be SLRs, DSLRs, Point & Shoot or Medium Format.
6. There will be one theme challenge labeled “black and white,” but feel free to post black and white, sepia, monotone, etc., for any of the other themes.
7. The picture you post should be taken during the week in which the theme is active to be eligible for judging.
8. Any picture taken from thread start date to listed closing date is acceptable.

P52-12-9: Patterns 2/26 - 3/3

Patterns in photography simply refers to the repetition of similar shapes and objects within the photo. The overall image will show texture, a unique color, and or different angles. Irregular patterns in photography are a bonus, as they typically grab more attention through their intriguing, repetitive nature. Consequentially, the viewer begins to decipher what he or she may be looking at, holding their attention longer. Some may argue that patterns add a distracting element to the frame but familiarity and similarity through recognition of shapes can stimulate the viewer.

The patterns left in the sand by the receding tide are a continuing source of inspiration to me

There's so many patterns in nature that my eye gets drawn to. especially when you get close up in flowers and look at the seed arrangements. It's hard for me to choose just one, but I think this is one of my favorites. It's the center area of a sunflower I shot when I first got my WR 100mm Macro.

As you look at the details you can see patterns within patterns. Ridges, Colors, just so much is there that the compressed version here doesn't do it justice. Here's a link to a full size version.

This challenge is closed and it's now time to judge the entries.

Thank you all for your participation.

Richard -- Nature provides many interesting patterns. I like this leaf pattern in black and white.
kypfer -- Another natural b&w pattern. The person walking the beach gives it a sense of scale.
Craigbob -- The spiral pattern of the fibonacci sequence in math and the natural world is one of my favorites also.
Yaki -- I like how you captured checking in these growth rings. Adds interest to the pattern.
Tom -- Another real time beach pattern well captured. Like that blue gray sand.

Jason -- Nice capture of that fence pattern with a nice bokeh background accent.
Noel -- Great color pattern here and I like the soft focus on the anthers and stigma. Makes for an interesting composition.

My pick for this week is kypfer's beach walker.

HMs to Tom and Noel.


Well done everyone.
