LINES AND CURVES: THE FOLLOWING EYE

CEE’S COMPOSE YOURSELF CHALLENGE

Exercise:  Show us 4 to 6 leading lines photos.  These photos should have fairly straight lines.

Extra credit for Gold Star Award: Show at least two photos of lines that have a slight curve or “S” curves.  This a different kind of leading line than the straight one, but it still takes your eye through your photo.


The first composition technique I learned was the importance of lines. Diagonal lines often are the difference between a dynamic picture and one that is pretty, but just sits there.

Weekly Photo Challenge: From Lines to Patterns – Stay in the Lines

Lines in and around the road

The lines in the road, the power lines running across and alongside the road … lines define the direction, the world. Stay within the line. Draw within the lines. Never ever go outside the line. This message is brought to you by Karma and Destiny, Attorneys at Law.
