Series of Four
This is the first Blog I will be putting up on a Series of Four images. Each blog will focus on a different aspect of photography, either technical or creative. This first series is on symmetry in composition. To see the full set of “Series of Four” blogs, click here.
Symmetry in Composition
Using symmetry in composition is very powerful but needs to be used sparingly and with care. Here are four images taken in very different situations but all of which use symmetry as their main compositional strength. Vertical symmetry usually brings a sense of calm and balance to an image.
The images are (clockwise from top left):
- An historic home in Florida, USA;
- St David’s Cathedral, Wales;
- A construction site, South London;
- A holiday cottage in Devon, England
