This week Patti challenges us to Diagonal Lines. Here is Patti’s Post.
When I think of leading lines, I don’t often think of them as diagonal lines, but they can be an effective way to lead the viewer to the subject of the photo. According to format.com, “When you want to provide a sense of change, motion, or direction, a diagonal line is a wonderful option. Most often, diagonal lines are visually followed from foreground to background, left to right, so in these cases your subject should be either at the start or end of your line to maximize impact. It should also be noted that, with diagonal lines, the direction the lines move can also affect visual effect.”
I searched my archives to see where I have used diagonal lines.
This challenge proves to me, I need to start looking for diagonal lines more often. They really can provide impact in you photo!
