The 365 Project: Week Twelve
This week on Picaboo, the challenge and theme was about leading lines. Leading lines use, well, lines to draw the viewer's attention to the subject and/or tell a story. They're easy to use and find: a brick wall, a fence, stairs, boardwalk, beach, sunset, etc. Basically anything with a line that "points" to your intended subject. My photo above of Kaylie playing along the water's edge made it into Picaboo's blog :)
I have to say I'm really happy I decided to do this project. It has challenged me and made into a much better photographer! I've learned about settings I never knew existed on my Canon as well! For this week, it was a little challenging to think in the terms of lines. I tend to consider a potential photo as a whole, instead of breaking it up a into separate parts to create a composition. Once I got a hang of it though, it was easy to find creative uses of lines! It was also fun using my daughter as a subject, she sure loves her photo taken!
