Geometric patterns are visually appealing and can be found almost anywhere you look (Figure 8.14). You see patterns not only in fabricated objects but also in nature, where some of the most beautiful and balanced patterns appear.

You can also use patterns, shapes, and even textures as a contrast to the main subject of your image (Figure 8.15). This is a very popular technique in portrait and bridal photography, where beautiful people are often photographed against harsh, textured surfaces or in urban environments.

Sometimes you can fi nd unusual patterns and shapes amidst ordinary objects, such as these chairs in an airport terminal.
