How To Take Good Photos
Composition: Use of lines

- You can create a sense of direction using naturally occurring lines
- Direction and orientation of lines can imply certain feelings.
- Slanting or oblique lines imply movement, action and change.
- Curved lines or S-shaped lines imply quiet, calm and sensual feelings
- Lines that converge imply depth, scale and distance, as seen in this quiet street in Avoch, Scotland to give a two-dimensional image three-dimensional depth.
- Repetitive elements create a sense of rhythm, which is often more interesting if the rhythm is broken by a missed element
