FAQ: Can Photographers Learn to Visualize the Dynamic Symmetry Grid While Taking Pictures?
It's highly unlikely that any photographer can visualize the full armature of the rectangle while trying to concentrate on the scene or subject they are photographing and I would be wary of those that claim they can. In most cases, these exaggerated claims are meant to sell products, not give the photographer a realistic view of how to apply Dynamic Symmetry principles to their body of work. With that said, the goal of the photographer shouldn't be to memorize the Dynamic Symmetry grid but instead develop the necessary skills to be able to recognize a masterful image intuitively.
