Leading Lines – Photography Composition

This post is part of our Rules of Composition in Photography series.

The use of lines can be used to direct the viewers attention to the subject of your photograph. These lines can be straight, diagonal, wavy, or any other creative variation. Just be aware that they may also lead away from the photography subject.
