Hi everyone. I have had quite a busy month of October that included a shooting trip to Zion National Park which was followed by my Fall in West Virginia Workshop with my partner Martin Radigan. I am still working through a myriad of images and will get some of these up here as soon as I can. I am holding off on the Zion images as I am waiting for the publication of my new article in the upcoming edition of Fuji X Passion Magazine, Volume 2.
The Diagonal Line is a line of energy and movement. It is a line that slices diagonally through an image and leads the eye into the frame. You can use them to create a strong impression of movement or you can use them to create a tremendous sense of depth.
Lines are one of the most basic elements we have in creating a photograph. Lines can be horizontal, vertical, diagonal, S-shaped, and even implied. Obviously a photograph can be made up of more than one kind of line. And additionally there are other elements such as light and shadow, shapes, colors, contrast, texture, and tonal values that all contribute to the final image.
