Leading Lines

This week’s photography assignment was ‘Leading Lines’. I set this to test our students’ use of composition. Composition in photography is one of the first things to master and leading lines is a great technique to add some foreground interest to a shot and lead the viewers eye into the main part of the shot.

From the gallery of entries, the people’s vote goes to Natasha Bell. Really great response to the theme using these train tracks to lead into her dog. Everyone loves a dog shot! 😊 Great response to the theme.

The second goes to Kevin Sparrow for this great low viewpoint of train tracks. Seems to have been a theme here 😊. Great example, well done.

My vote this week goes to Liz Semain for her use of the serpentine line to lead through the frame of this shot. The serpentine line is said to the beautiful shape known to man and if you get a chance to use it in a shot, take it. There’s a lovely S shape going from the bottom left corner to the top right and because of that it’s turning this usually mundane bridge into a great composition. Well done Liz.
