Photographers that are new to Dynamic Symmetry might find the application of camera grids beneficial. Much like training wheels help a child from falling over when they're learning how to ride a bike, camera grids can aid the beginner in learning more about classical skill-based design. In many ways, experimenting with Dynamic Symmetry camera grids will help improve your visual literacy skills as an artist and photographer. However, once you have grasped the basics of good design, using this crutch should be used sparingly or avoided altogether. To download a free camera grid pack, click here.
How to Make a Dynamic Symmetry Grid (for any digital camera)
Step 1 In the design program of your choice, create a page filled with the Dynamic Symmetry grids. The number of grids displayed will vary depending on the size of your LCD screen on the back of your camera. For myself, because I'm shooting with a Leica M240, I created a page that has four across and three down (see below image).
Step 2 Print the page of Dynamic Symmetry grids on a sheet of Staples repositionable window decal paper. You can find this product at your local Staples store or Amazon.com.
Step 3 Once printed, let the sheet dry for 20 mins to allow the ink to stabilize. After the sheet is completely dry, cut and peel the perfectly sized grid and lay it over your LCD screen on the back of your camera. The decal can be pulled off easily at any time.
Dynamic Symmetry Art is a non-commercial, comprehensive skill-based art learning resource for the serious artist, photographer, and graphic designer that wants to learn the art of composition and improve their visual literacy skills.
Unlike so many other art and photography websites that offer the same tips, tricks, and rules, dynamicsymmetryart.com is about separating fact from fiction, revealing the painter's secret geometry, and providing easy-to-apply design techniques for anyone that has a strong desire to create masterful work.
All of the products that I recommend on Dynamic Symmetry Art I own and are of the highest quality available. More importantly, this website does not make any money through Amazon links or receive kickbacks for the sale of any video or book product recommended.
