Because of their well-balanced appearance, symmetrical photos would sometimes appear dull and predictable. However, the art of taking such photos can be a daunting challenge. Looking for a perfect vantage point for the shot or a superb composition is a real challenge. Of course, this is dependent on the experience of the photographer and a bit of luck also helps. Some symmetrical photos may even not be intentional and end up as a supprise for the photographer.

Symmetrical photos as they are logically called, belongs to a kind of photography where the elements of one side of the photo are perfectly balanced by those that can be found on the other side. It almost looks as if there is a huge invisible mirror…. In this article, you have a chance to get to know this kind of photography from the examples we have collected. Check them out below and next time you have the chance, try to capture a symmetrical composition yourself.

I love symmetry, and seeing these photos blows my mind, seeing the symmetry that can be found in life. I’ve always thought of photography as more commercial, like wedding photography, and not necessarily as art. It does me good to see that people can still see the beauty in the regular things, and represent it so well through photos.
