The Use of “Leading Lines” is a techniques use to get the viewers eye through the image. It is a powerful way to control where the viewers eyes will go. Leading lines can be in any shape, form, or angle as long as it leads to a certain subject in the image. Leading line is also known as converging lines because sometimes in some images the leading lines converge with each other. Leading Lines
Rules Of Third This rule is important because the framing can be divided into 3 horizontal and vertical sections, it is divided by 2 horizontal, 2 vertical and then the lines cross each other it make an model location for the subject to be put in and by putting the subject where the line cross the subject can be emphasis. Using this is also good if there are more than just one subject. This also stop horizons from appearing to divide the picture in half.
Simplicity Is when the image taken is really simple. The subject should be clear and the other unimportant details in the image can be blur or and simple to avoid destruction. When using simplicity in an image avoid using lines or objects that can lead the viewers eyes away from the main subject. Simplicity is another word for simple; the image that is taken must be easy to understand and this can be achieved by getting closer to the subject.
Framing Is when an image use its surroundings to create a frame or a border. The main subject must also be seen and to add a great deal to the picture when the frame is something related to the object being framed. Vignetting is a very popular framing technique. To achieve a high “depth of field” the subject must not be the only thing that is focus and also a good use of a narrow opening.
Texture Is when the image has a lot of significant amount of interest in any picture. This means when people start to look at the image they will start to imagine how it feels to feel or touch what's in the image. To take a good texture photo the light must come exactly from the side of the surface so it shows the shadows in certain places.
Colour/Balance Can be use to add all sorts of accents and effects but must be careful not to lead the viewers eyes away from the main subject. The colour balance is when there are other colours to balance the primary colour so that the viewers eyes will be awe by the colours use in the image.
Angle Shots <ul><li>Is use to show different angle of the subject. There are a lot of angles being use by photographers: </li></ul><ul><li>-Bird view </li></ul><ul><li>-high angle </li></ul><ul><li>-eye angle </li></ul><ul><li>-low angle </li></ul><ul><li>-Oblique/Canted Angle </li></ul><ul><li>Worm s view </li></ul><ul><li>The image make use different angle because it also show the difference of an object, also makes it interesting to look at a different view than where use to looking at things. </li></ul>Birds View Low Angle
