December 14, 2016 – Symmetry. It’s harder to find than you might think. I mean, symmetry exists by design in buildings and cars and… things, but finding symmetry in separate entities proved to be a challenge. I kept making shots and then later realizing they represented pattern more than symmetry. But as I loaded the newsvan after shooting interviews with USC football payers about making it into the Rose Bowl, I looked ahead and saw this. Landscape Symmetrical.
Week 50: Landscape Symmetrical
Often considered one of the hardest compositions to pull off, Symmetry. Challenge yourself this week by shooting a symmetrical landscape/urbanscape.
Okay, so it’s not perfect symmetry. To be honest, I was hoping for something better. This shot was handheld, high ISO, has mixed color temperature, and yes, the imperfect symmetry. There was no editing in this photo, by the way. This is the way the camera interpreted the light–which is kinda cool, right? I also like the way the light reflects off the crossing stripes, and there are elements of symmetry in the image, so even though the photo has issues, rather than delay the post to search for something more interesting, I’m moving ahead. With only a couple of weeks to go in this 52 Week Challenge, I don’t want to fall behind.
So there you have it. My Landscape Symmetrical.
Until next week’s Artistic Art…
