Manmade Patterns | Weekly Photography Challenge

This weekly photo challenge is deigned to complement our free online photography basics classes. Each week we will set a different theme and your homework is to go out and photograph a collection of images related to that theme.


You can start this challenge whenever you like and do the different themes in any order you see fit. Think of these challenges as a photography workout. Don’t just do them once and not revisit them. If you do start these challenges as you begin our online basics classes then in a few months why not revisit older challenges to see how much better a photographer you have become.

Also try to think outside the box as much as possible. Photography is as much about creative interpretation as it is about technical prowess.


If at any time you’d like a critique of your images then please feel free to email us.


Last week’s photography challenge was all about searching for patterns in nature, this week we are looking for patterns that are manmade.


Often manmade patterns are inspired by nature so it would be interesting to see if you can find patterns that are very similar to the ones you created in last week’s challenge.


Patterns can be created in various ways. They can be part of structures, fabric digital or in print form. Some might be abstract concepts like a print patterns of a manmade structure like brickwork.

Some other manmade pattern might be created to seem organic and random whilst still be very organised in their creation.


Consider the perspective you are photographing from. You could try aerial photography (which is as easy to going to the top of a tall building) or photographing patterns from a very low angle.
