50 Clever Geometric Photography Images


Documenting the various shapes, that is the geometry around us through photographs is often called geometric photography. If we look around, we can see a lot of shapes like circles, curves, lines, triangles, rectangles and so on, that are put together creatively to form structures. Sometimes, one can luckily find some in natural landscapes as well.

Geometric photography has no limits as different structures are built differently and we see these structures everywhere around us. Geometric photography helps bring emphasis to shapes, forms, patterns that most people would not notice much otherwise and these geometric patterns are most often seen in architectural structures.

With geometric photography, you can either focus on just the shapes and patterns by photographing them closely, look for symmetry, converging or intersecting lines, go for an abstract frames, shoot different perspectives, add an element in between the geometrical patterns to create a compelling image, look in landscapes, streets and roads for patterns/geometry or even go wide and photograph minimal structures.

If you are interested in geometric photography, here are some great shots for ideas and inspiration and we also have some resources towards the end that you can refer to for photographing geometry.
