PHOTOGRAPHY SIMPLIFIED: 4.3. DIAGONAL LINES

TUTORIAL – 4.3
DIAGONAL LINES

DIAGONAL LINES are dynamic creating the sense of force, energy, motion, action, rhythm in the picture. These lines also produce the effect of depth suggesting perspective.

Since our natural way of viewing images or reading is from left to right  the diagonal lines starting from the bottom left  and moving to top right of an image be more effective. But the too many diagonal lines intersecting with one another  might make the photo chaotic or confusing.
