Photo Composition - Use The Corners
Although the planning for my migration from Aperture to Lightroom is taking a significant chunk of time, there is one fringe benefit. I am revisiting a lot of my older photo projects, reliving memories, remembering past travels. I also get to see how I've improved as a photographer over the years.
A composition pattern I've noticed in many of my favorite photos is "use the corners". What this means is placing your subject such that leading lines emanate from the corners of the frame. Why does this work? The lines draw your viewer's eye into the frame. And as an added bonus, diagonal lines convey a more dynamic feel to what's otherwise a static image.
The next time you're shooting, look for leading lines that use the corners.
