Repetition in Composition
We don't often notice patterns of repetition in nature. In the photograph to the left, the repetition is obvious to everyone looking. But very often, patterns of repetition only appear to be so when you are looking at the pattern from a particular angle. In the photograph below, the daffodils were simply a few in a group of about 20 to 30 flowers. I had to find an angle of view that would allow them to show up as a repeated pattern, and I had to place the camera close enough to the flowers to exclude other flowers that competed with the design pattern I wanted.
depth of field can hide elements of the scene that do not quite fit the pattern.
Seeing patterns of repetition comes with practice as you learn how to arrange all the visual elements of a scene to support your composition.
