2013 PhotoChallenge, Week 45: SYMMETRY

One of the most helpful tools I brought with me to photography was a general understanding of graphic design and art appreciation. Knowing effective ways to compose a piece of art, whether following the traditional rules or not, can make the difference between a snapshot and photographic art.

So this next week I’d like you to seek a symmetrical composition.

sym·me·try
noun
the quality of being made up of exactly similar parts facing each other or around an axis.

There are even natural occurrences of symmetry. Look around. Photowalk a bit. Make several photos, and contemplate that one shot you think could be your best submission.

I found a couple of articles that address of handful of good tips, both of which address the value of some symmetry.

Remember, our general goal is to select just one photo to share with the rest of us, and that we make the photograph and submit it, all within the week of the said theme. Please try hard to submit your photo this week. If you get behind, don’t worry about it, but there’s no need to submit this week’s theme, next week. If you miss a week, join us again with the existing week’s theme.

Also, the best ways to share with the rest of the PhotoChallenge community is to post your photo, or a link to it elsewhere, at our Google+ Community, Facebook Group, and/or Flickr Group.
