A pattern in PROPOSAL PHOTOGRAPHY IN NEW YORK is a repetition of uniform textures, shapes, objects, colors. A repeating motif, pattern or ornament is harmonious and attractive to the eye of the viewer. Emphasis on the relationship of colors, shapes, lines contributes to the development of the photographer’s vision.

And here are some tips for shooting patterns:

Look for patterns at large and small scales: in macro photography and aerial photography.
Notice patterns in living and non-living nature: in the veins of leaves and the facades of buildings.
Experiment with the angle and shooting point: shoot from the side, from below and from above.
Fill the entire frame with the pattern to maximize the effect.
Break the structure of the pattern with an accent element: this enhances the effect on the viewer.
