Recap: Leading Lines and Diagonals
A useful technique in photography composition is the use of lines. Lines can be found naturally anywhere, such as roads, tracks, and buildings. The use of lines that all converge at a single point, such as a road leading into the horizon, helps give a feeling of perspective. Lines can also be used to lead the eyes to focus on a certain object.
