Diagonal Lines in Landscape Photography – PictureCorrect

Another tip regarding landscape photography from Danny Eitreim at Picture Correct.

Today’s landscape photo tip involves – photography diagonal lines!

In a landscape photo, portrait photo, still life or any other, the first major task of the photographer is to draw the viewer’s eye to the most important aspects of the shot – and keep it there!

We want our photo to send some sort of message – if not, we shouldn’t be taking the shot – so we want to be certain that our viewer’s attention is focused in the right area. By the way, the “message” we are sending could be as simple as wanting them to see an attractive cloud formation, or some pretty colors in a rainbow – whatever.

We are taking the shot because something in that scene attracted us and we want the viewer to see it too!

This is actually the whole point to the photo composition rules. To make sure the viewer sees what we want them to see in the scene.
