Symmetry

Well done to the winners of this week’s assignment ‘Symmetry’. This theme is set to test student’s response to our lesson on composition. Composition in photography is one of the most important thing to get right. A good use of composition can turn a mediocre subject into an outstanding picture and it’s really easy to achieve.

The basic principle of symmetry is to find a scene that you can make symmetrical. A symmetrical scene will give a neat, clinical feeling. It’s almost as if you’re tidying up the world!

This week’s winners are…….

The people vote goes to Eddie Paget for this perfectly composed scene of a train station bridge. A great example of how you can make the most every day thing interesting with a good use of composition.

My choice goes to Sophie Fisher for this lovely framed picture of a cathedral. I like this because the even though the two people throw the symmetry out, they still add to the shot and I think it looks better for them being there. Well done Sophie, a great use of composition.
