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.
