USE OF LINE EXAMPLE SLIDES
Use of Line Assignment
Use of line is a compositional technique photographers frequently use to make compelling images. Incorporating lines into your compositions can create interest and unite the elements in a scene.
WHAT TO DO: Shoot a minimum of 30 images with amazing use of line in your compositions.
•Pick TWO, of the seven types of lines described in the lecture (vertical, horizontal, diagonal, leading, implied, converging and curved lines) and integrate them into in your compositions.
•You must shoot the images for this assignment, you cannot use photos from a previous shoot.
After you have PICKED your TWO BEST images:
•Correct the brightness of the photos using Photoshop Levels or Curves settings.
•Turn in 2 Images and a proofsheet of 30 images showing beautiful "Use Of Lines"
Fill the frame • Get close to your subjects • Your photos will be more interesting if you have a "focal point" (an object or something of interest to contrast against the background and to hold your eye) in the composition. Use different different angles to make your images more interesting.
THINGS TO PHOTOGRAPH:
Lines! But more than just lines -use the different types of lines in an interesting composition of people, objects, fences, walkways, buildings, textures -any subject that makes a beautiful photo...
