Weekly Photography Tip
We started to chat about composition last week and we will continue this conversation over the next couple of weeks.
Today, let’s chat about composition and how leading lines play a huge part in our images. Leading lines are used to draw the eye towards a particular point of interest in the scene. Leading lines can also be used to frame a subject. They can also be used to simply create interest in a scene.
Here are some examples of leading lines as far as home decor and interiors are concerned:
- stairs, banisters, and stair handrails
- wood trim casings, hardwood floors, windows, door frames, cased openings
- couches, coffee tables, kitchen islands & cabinetry, exposed ceiling beams
- fencing, rooflines, pergolas, exterior architecture
I’m only scratching the surface with the examples. And frankly, it’s an area I am still working on myself! Go back over the list I just gave you and imagine in your mind’s eye the straight lines in each example. Look in your own home for these leading lines!
Use these leading lines in your photography to frame the subject or direct the viewer’s eye to a particular subject. Move around the room and get different perspectives of these leading lines.
Here is an example: let’s say your subject is an adorable cloche sitting on top of a stack of vintage books on your coffee table. In your camera’s viewfinder, place the long edge of the coffee table as a leading line that takes the eye toward the cloche. Also, use the stack of books with its horizontal leading lines to slightly frame the cloche.
Here is one more example to get your imagination going: use leading lines to frame the scene. If you have a cased opening between two rooms, use the cased opening trim to frame one of the rooms. It’s really a beautiful look!
The examples of leading lines are endless! I encourage you to look for straight lines in your scene that you could use to guide the viewer’s eye to the subject and throughout the entire scene. Open your eyes in your own home and look for leading lines!
