Symmetric Photograph is the picture in which the subject looks similar (like mirror image) when it is split down the middle and the sides are the mirror images even in dimensional or geometrical way. Consider a photo with a triangle or square is cut in half, then both sides of the photo would be a reflection of each other.
When trying to shoot a photo when items are placed evenly apart may produce a symmetrical photograph. Below you can have a look at some photographs that are creative and beautiful examples of symmetry in photograph.

Spent a few hours in one of the pools at Zebula Lodge, Limpopo, up to my neck in water, slowly stalking the dragonflies that were flying around. I eventually got close enough to one to capture this shot with my macro lens.

Symmetry kept jumping out at me for a couple years. It’s a simplistic interpretation, but I think I was really seeking balance in my life at that time.

It looked like a fisheye photo to me at first (because of the round arches on the ceiling i guess), but as you can see, the stairs are straight, so no fisheye.
We had a wedding at Caldwell Chapel recently. Just posting one picture from a series that will follow. This one picture show cases the symmetry of the building in a unique way. A fine art approach to the capture of photograph here.

Imagine a world in perfect symmetrical balance, all imperfections obscured. Like the fog and snow around the Midwest today, it won’t last long.
