As mentioned in the reader, once you start looking for triangles, you'll find them everywhere! The reader mentioned that triangles bring a sense of activity and dynamism in a picture. Looking at my pictures, I see this is true, although I find that if all lines of the triangle are of equal distance, the picture gets a more static feel to it, then when the corners aren't exactly 45 degrees.
I've been working a lot on setting up still life scenes and am still finding it really difficult, whether it's fruit, kitchen utensils or flowers, to me a scene seems to be either too dull or messy. But after lots of shots and comparing the results, I start to see what works and what doesn't. Apart from the lines and shapes, I discovered that the space between the objects and subjects can make or break an image. But more about that later. Here are some of the pictures I've taken during my still life sessions, and others in different parts of Dakar.
It has been really helpful to read these parts about design. I still feel there's a lot to be learned, so I have been looking a lot at other photographers work, especially the early 20 century ones. More on that in upcoming posts!
