Patterns

Rhythm and balance can be added to your images by finding the patterns in everyday life and concentrating on the elements that rely on geometric influences. Try to find the balance and patterns that often go unnoticed (Figure 9.6).

Color

Color works well as a tool for composition when you have very saturated colors to work with. Some of the best colors are those within the primary palette. Reds, greens, and blues, along with their complementary colors (cyan, magenta, and yellow), can all be used to create visual tension (Figure 9.7). This tension between bright colors adds visual excitement, drama, and complexity to your images when combined with other compositional elements.

You can also use a color as a theme for your photography. If you’re out shooting when the skies are blue, for example, try to use the sky as part of the background for some element of your image. The blue sky can serve as a pleasing contrast, incorporating visual interest and introducing isolation to the subject. Or, find shots that include several variations of the same hues.

These concrete steps are nice enough when viewed from above, thanks to their curved design, but I found them to be even more interesting when viewed straight on.

The yellow and green colors contrast in a bold way; the washed texture of the green adds visual interest.
