In art triangles are a wonderful and beautiful thing. We look for them to help describe an image, we create them with shadows and subjects and we use them to lead the eye around a picture.
Take a walk into any art gallery and take a look at some of the old great masters. Whilst you might not see an actually triangle shape you’ll notice points of interest, like a highlight, that if you drew a line to connect them together would create a triangle.
In photography this isn’t an easy skill to master and it’s the difference between good and great photography.
Start off simply photographing triangular shapes and put them in your frame in the most pleasing way possible.
This weekly photo challenge is designed to complement our photography basics section the London Mums website. 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 and think outside the box as much as possible. Photography is as much about creative interpretation as it is about technical prowess.
