Radial Symmetry

4 08 2015

This week’s lesson is about radial symmetry. I saw a piece on CBS Sunday Morning about an art project by photographer Roger Rowley, of Moscow, Idaho, as he tried creative ways he get his kids to eat fruit for breakfast.You can see his photos on his Fruit Plate site.

I arranged a bowl of fruit and used a Twirl action in PSE on a close-up of the bowl. The bowl contained blueberries, strawberries, and bananas. I got the action from someone on the Elements Village FB page. Elements Village used to be a forum on a server but it was shut down. The group migrated to FB. It is the group that I did several 365 Photo Challenges. The group was formed for people using Photoshop Elements. To see the original image go to: https://needlepointernc.wordpress.com/ and you can see some of the flower photos I took a few weeks ago transformed with the same action.

I absolutely love the motion of the twirling colours – your fruit design worked so well with this action!

Amazing! This is energy captured in a single shot. The colors and lines are so sharp. Well done.

Beautiful! Some members of a FB I’m in just started playing with a set of filter steps including radial blur and twirl. Might be an interesting technique for redeeming photos on their way to the trash bin. 🙂

The fruit plate idea was based on a segment that was on CBS Sunday Morning show in the USA. A guy was trying to get his kids to eat more fruit. He ended up photographing all of the plates: http://www.fruitplate.org/. I did blueberries, strawberries and bananas, which you can see on my blog.

This is beautiful, the colors are very pretty. The swirls look almost woven, I love the colors and texture. Great job!
