Practicing Dynamic Symmetry Techniques at Museums
Photographers that want to practice applying Dynamic Symmetry principles to their compositions will find shooting landscapes, still life, or exhibits in museums great exercise for sharpening their visual literacy skills. Because photographing still life subjects doesn't involve any moving visual elements, it makes it easier for the photographer to concentrate on all the design techniques mentioned throughout this website.
Below are several photographs that I shot at a museum in Mystic, Ct while I was there on vacation. Even though I don’t consider these practice images “works of art,” they should at least give the reader an idea of how to experiment with a variety of classical skill-based design techniques that include dominant lines, figure-ground relationship, overlapping elements, arabesques, etc.
