Shapes and patterns
When on location we often focus on the grand scene in front of us. As landscape photographers we often forget to look for shapes and patterns. Great abstract images can be had by just thinking out of the landscape. How about looking for things that repeat? Have you noticed shadows and light? Are there any patterns? How about this?
This image of Gypsum taken at White Sands National Monument might not be that great. But I like the shadows and light, the patterns, and the texture. This is not the obvious shot to take when you are at a place such as White Sands. Being on the lookout for this sort of image can present great images.
The light is low and much different in this image than in the image before. Once again, we have texture, interplay between light and shadows, shapes and patterns. What makes this image better than the one preceding it?
Try a few images using shapes, lines, textures, light and shadows, and patterns.
