Lines

5 Comments

This image was taken in Central Park NYC in 2009. I noticed the pattern of strong lines in the bricks overhead and seen potential for a good black and white composition. I switched to my 10-20mm lens to include as much of the pattern of lines in the shot as possible. I waited for someone to approach the tunnel from the other side to give the photo added depth and lead the viewers eyes to the main subject.

Here’s another example of the use of leading lines in a photograph. This was taken at a local beach. The fence and strong shadows create a visual path that leads the viewers eye into the photo. The figure on the dune adds scale to the image. Here is a link to an article that gives more detailed information on the use of lines in photography
