We're going places this week as we continue to explore the creative use of lines in our compositions. I am using a branch I shot with a long lens and then applied a painterly effect in post processing.
There is a sense of movement and immediacy when diagonal lines are effectively captured in a photograph. When used thoughtfully, they can imbue an image with tension and energy. Diagonal lines can give a sense of soaring structure, or add remarkable depth to an image. As is the case with other kinds of lines, they help direct the eye and encourage the viewer to explore the frame.
We anticipate you will enjoy our collective take this week on the use of diagonal lines by HERE.
