Showing the World Symmetry in Photography
While it is unclear if there is any mystical or magical meaning behind symmetry as a notion, there is definitely strong esthetic value this phenomenon represents in many forms of fine arts, and especially in photography, where finding and capturing symmetry in the world around is one of the most favorite tricks photographers use to make their pictures interesting and eye-catching. Today, Cruzine magazine offers its readers a virtual trip to the world of symmetry – the world in which we actually live, but not always pay our attention and notice all the amazing examples of symmetry and those awesome visual designs symmetry may create when placed in focus of a photo camera. You may now skip reading this sentence since it is placed here only for the purpose of creating symmetry between two paragraphs of this intro article – now each contain 143 words.
Symmetry is a common feature of architecture: bridges, subway tunnels, buildings interiors and dome elements – these are examples of places, where a photographer may find symmetry. If the object is found, it is only a matter of correct positioning of the camera to grab the symmetry out of the environment and make it a core of a single photo. Sometimes, hunters for symmetry find it in the most unexpected places – it can be a bazaar booth with hundreds of bags displayed with symmetry in mind, or an air show, where military planes perform perfect symmetric figures in the air. After all, nature remains a rich source of symmetry for art; though it is not that easy to find symmetry among natural landscapes, when a photographer manages to do that – it is a guarantee of a perfect picture with true uniqueness and natural charm.
