New Photo Mission: Throw A Curve

By EyeEm Team - 2 min read

Curvaceous and fabulous – it’s time to shoot some beautiful bends!

There’s plenty of geometric and architectural photography out there, focusing on strong straight lines and angles. But what about the other side of this? What about photographing the curves, the bends and the arcs? Surrounding us every day, there’s no limit to how many beautiful bends you can shoot to create eye-catching abstract images. That’s why this mission is simply called, Throw A Curve.
