A quick tip on repetition.
I spotted this scene at a local outdoors mall that includes a Starbucks and a movie theater.
Not quite sure what they are putting up, but I know that it was a great example of repetition.
Patterns are everywhere, finding them and incorporating them into your composition is the trick.
Remember that repetition and patterns help to draw the attention of your viewers into your frame and then if you can incorporate a single item that interrupts that pattern to draw even more
attention to the composition.
Notice how the ladder breaks the pattern for a moment, but then it continues on, to create a great image.
Look for patterns and utilize them for another strong compositional tool.
Be inspired!
