Leading Lines

The Rule of Thirds is a good guide to use when taking your pictures. Now let's add another
element to the composition of the photograph.

When we look at a photo our eye is naturally drawn along lines. By thinking about how you place lines in your composition, you can affect the way we view the image, pulling us into the picture, towards the subject, or on a journey 'through' the scene.

I love this photo my son took of my hubby and I walking over the bridge.

Use converging lines to draw the
viewer into the cute couple holding hands.

The conveyor belt tells the story in this picture.

The bridge draws your eye across the river.

Horizons should generally not be placed in the middle of your frame. This leaves an image feeling unsettled compositionally. A much more effective technique is to place them in the upper or lower third of your frame.
