Elements of visual design.
There are many elements of design, which include shape, line, pattern,color, and texture. When combined, we experience form within a two-dimensional media. Each of these can make or break a photograph.
PATTERN, is an element used to draw the eye around a picture plane. Repetition within photograph will attract the attention of the audience.
Texture, another element of art, is used to describe either the way a three-dimensional work actually feels when touched, or the visual "feel" of a two-dimensional work.
Forms, are defined by their lines, shapes, and volume. Lines define the subject and determine its shape. Volume, from front to back, top to bottom and side to side, along with complimenting light is what makes a photo three-dimensional.
shape, is an element of art. Specifically, it is an enclosed space, the boundaries of which are defined by other elements of art (i.e.: lines, colors, values, textures, etc.).
Lines, are lines within an image that leads the eye to another point in the image, or occasionally, out of the image. Anything with a definite line can be a leading line. Fences, bridges, even a shoreline can lead the eye. If can pair leading lines with a subject that is placed according to the rule of third your image should be very strong.
Color,photography is photography that uses media capable of representing colors,light-sensitive electronic sensors record color information at the time of exposure.
