Tip of the Week: Unseen Symmetry


Photograph/Aditya Nair

Mirrors and reflections create a symmetry that not only looks artistic, but can also create some interesting shapes in the world around us. Now, what if we were to create reflections when they actually do not exist? That is possible by mirroring photographs in Photoshop to create shapes that are rather surreal. Notice various faces, creatures and winged beasts that can be created out of the symmetry. Like the famous psychological test of the Rorschach ink blot, each image has a number of interpretations that are hidden within its symmetry. Each person who would see the image would look at it in a different way, depending on their own individual experiences.
