photography tip

Use lines to lead the eye

One of the questions you should always ask yourself as you do landscape photography is: “How am I leading the eye of those viewing this composition?” There are a number of ways to lead the eye (and including a clear foreground subject works well). But one of my favorite ways is to provide viewers with lines that lead them into the image (such as the road in the photo above). Lines give an image depth and scale. Plus, they can offer a point of interest by creating patterns in your shot.
