Leading lines guide the eye. Chris Mattia teaches you what to look for and how to leverage these hidden guidelines in every image you capture for teaching and learning.
- The last compositional element that we…need to talk about is the concept…of leading lines.…Now as children,…we all learn that it's often easier to…follow a well worn path to success…than it is to constantly have to blaze…your own new trail.…It's just something that we've all learned…and we naturally look for those paths…that may guide us to our next success.…It happens so unconsciously that we…rarely think about it anymore,…but this concept of a path to success…is something that you can use…visually in your image to…enhance your teaching and learning assets.…
And it's a concept called "Leading Lines",…and compose your shots to include…lines that will naturally draw the eye…and lead your viewer to your subject.…Now once you begin to notice these lines…you'll realize they're virtually everywhere.…And they often require you to only make a…slight change in your image composition,…to really use them to your advantage.…In our Moai example,…notice how in this image your eye just…tends to wander around the open space…in the image.…
