Lines to Patterns: In Gray, Sepia and Living Color
With just the right angle of light, lines cast shadows revealing parallel shapes that add an additional dimension to the subject being framed by the lens.
Taking it a step further, removing color in favor of sepia tones or gray scale (B&W) for certain compositions, I believe, makes the presentation even more eye-catching than its original state, turning the frames into old period pieces.
Sepia tones or B&W can dramatically change the entire mood of the moment when bright colors no longer dominate the scene. Of course, a little splash of chroma now and then never hurts the eyes, right?
Here’s a sampling of some Lines to Patterns photography — this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge theme — in sepia, B&W and living color. Just click on each frame for a full-screen view.
