Elements in the creation of photographs can refer to aspects of an image such as color, texture, patterns, shapes, tones, and juxtaposition. Most of the time when we snap a picture, we are composing it out of multiple elements.
For the first photo prompt of the Contemplative Vision group, participants were asked to focus on just a single element. Once settled on an element, participants were sent out into the world to find examples of that element and take 2-3 pictures of it. Their photo responses are below.
