When composing a shot, sometimes you want to draw the viewer into your photo and direct their attention to the main subject – this could be an object in a landscape, a building, a person or almost anything else.
The technique of composing your shot to include something that draws the eye from the edge of the picture to the subject is know as “Lead in Lines”. This example uses a path curving towards the stately home, that draws the eye from the bottom left of the frame to the main subject – the house.
Look out for lead in lines when you’re next composing a shot like this.
Lead in Lines is another of the composition techniques covered in our “Getting Started” course.
