This is my submission for Brenda’s A Photo Study: Rhythm I.
Rhythm in visual art is probably the most difficult subject to comprehend for me. More and more, I realize that things I can’t see in my head are harder for me to understand. And rhythm is one of them.
After reading Brenda’s post and watching Ted’s video (link on Brenda’s post) a couple of times, I became concerned, because I didn’t fully understand what they said. As usual, I started googling like crazy. Reading several articles later, I still didn’t quite get it. That’s when I decided to go back to the basic: (1) what is rhythm in music (I thought I knew, but maybe I didn’t.) (2) how does one apply rhythm in visual design (not in photography, but in art design).
I am happy to say that I finally did find an article and a video that helped me to grasp the concept.
Article “Rhythm in Art”: “The concept of rhythm in art represents the easy movement of the viewer’s eyes following a regular arrangement or reproduction of elements in the art work.”
Ah-ha, I totally understand “the easy movement of the viewer’s eyes”! 😉
Video: Beat and Rhythm Explained
This simple video helps me to remember what rhythm is.
I feel exhausted, but I am very happy. Can you sense the beat and rhythm in my words? 😉
