Exercise; Rhythms and patterns

Produce at least two photographs, one should convey rhythm, the other pattern


I saw the pattern produced by the Hosta leaves in the garden, so I framed the photo tightly so that no boundaries to the pattern were seen.


Here the eye is drawn from the out of focus base of the flower to the in-focus red tip of the floret at the top.

What have I learnt from this exercise? Before starting this course I understood little about pattern or rhythm in photographs, if they happened at all in my pictures then it will have been by accident. I now feel a little more confident about how I can use this knowledge to improve my photography.
