Week 27 of 52-Week Photography Challenge
IT’S WEEK 27 of the 52-Week Photography Challenge! We are over halfway through the year now! Well done for sticking with us – and “Welcome!” to those who have joined us during the last 6 months. The aim of the Photography Challenge is to challenge yourself and get into the useful habit and routine of taking photographs regularly and with purpose.
WEEK 27 – SYMMETRY AND PATTERNS
Look for symmetry and patterns in both the natural and human-made world.
Symmetry in photography refers to two parts of an image with a similar, if not identical shape, structure or format. Symmetry in a photograph creates a visual sense of harmony, balance and order that appeals to the viewer’s eyes.
The repetition of lines, shapes, tones, or colours can create interesting images. Also, look for those instances where the pattern or symmetry is broken; these asymmetrical elements can add an interesting factor to your photograph.
Your challenge – use symmetry and patterns to create stronger photographs.
As ever, these challenges are to encourage new photography, so we ask you not to simply re-use your existing stock.
And do please send in your images associated with these challenges – or your other activities as a Club Member. We will publish them on these pages.
