Patterns can be found in just about anything you photograph; in a greenhouse full of plants, a spider’s web, the bricks in a wall, or the supermarket shelf of tins. By isolating patterns you can reveal the geometrical order of a subject. The most suitable viewpoint for taking pictures of patterns is usually from straight on, frontal position. Although diffuse lighting might help accentuate the pattern, it is better to use soft, directional lighting, which will help suggest form and colour.
