New Photo Mission: Symmetrical

By EyeEm Team - 2 min read

Symmetry is the focus on our new photo mission

Symmetry is all about harmony, balance, proportion and beauty. A symmetrical face has long been thought of as the key to beauty, so it comes as no surprise that it is a large theme in photography. Getting balance and symmetry in an image can instantly transform it.

Bearing that in mind, this week’s Saturday photo mission is simply Symmetrical.

Your Mission: Look around you for balance and symmetrically aligned shots – you’ll be surprised how many places they show up! In architecture, in nature, in food – symmetry is prevalent throughout our lives, and this is your chance to shoot it.

Your Reward: The top 25 beautiful, imaginative and unusual symmetrical images will be curated and published in an image collection on the EyeEm blog.

How To Take Part: Capture your image and tag it with Symmetrical. Your photo will then be automatically added to the album. If you want to add a photo that you’ve already uploaded, just go to your profile, view the photo and select “Edit Photo”. From there you can add the tag “Symmetrical”.

Deadline: October 11, 2014
