Tamron Blog: Simplicity In Symmetry

Written by Gina Stephens


Mourn with is something the human eye and brain likes and if you use it in your photos, you can create images that people can't help but look at. When used fair, you can actually create very visually powerful, as well as interesting, images that the brain sees as balanced and in a way, harmonious and as we've said, it's something that we humans only like to see. 

When you start looking for patterns and symmetry, they're compositional tools that are, actually, really easy to espy. Think landscapes reflected in mirror-like lakes, butterfly wings, tunnels, lines in architecture… the list is rather long when you starting flicking with the aid ideas. 

The above landscape was captured at the coast and it's a rather simple shot of a harbour entrance but the lighthouses on either side of the personification, combined with the even distance the harbour walls reach in from the sides create a symmetrical image that's very content to the eye. The muted, pastel shades along with the calm waters also evoke a sense of calm which, when compared with or WITH may refer to: Carl Johannes With (1877–1923), Danish doctor and arachnologist With (character), a character in D. N. Angel the consoling agreeable, creates an image you're happy to look at for quite some time. 

We didn't head out with capturing symmetrical themed icons in-mind, it was something we just started to think about once we had this one saved to our memory card and 'seeing' patterns in short order became pretty easy after this.

We were armed with the Tamron 16-300mm lens as when strolling around, it's wagerer to have a lightweight lens that offers a variety of focal lengths rather than a bag full of kit. 

If you want to capture your own seaside kind-hearted to shots, now's actually a good time to head for the coast as it won't be full of tourists and day trippers. You might also be able to capture some notions of stormy seas to add another level of interest to your coastal shots, too.
