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.
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. Additionally, all the information provided on this website is strictly intended to teach the artist and photographer more about the art of composition and should never be used for any commercial purpose.
This website does not have any commercial affiliations with any other company.
