Lleading lines (sometimes called 'Lead-in Lines') are a way to lead your viewer on a journey through your image and deliver them to the key subject of your photo.
Leading Lines are simple to use once you know where to look for them and how to apply them. They add depth to an image and make it more eye catching.
Follow this simple example and you'll get the hang of it. Then you'll be able to look for leading lines yourself whether you're shooting landscape, portraits or architecture.
Leading lines will draw your viewer into a journey through your image, connect elements of your picture, make the composition easy to understand and add another dimension to your composition. Check out our how to use leading lines film for help finding and using these powerful composition tools.
The 7 Building Blocks of Photography has massively improved my photography overall. It has made me think about how I want an image to look, rather than just going out looking for an image, then get home and be disappointed. My approach now is to visualise, construct it block by block then make it happen. My 'hit rate' has soared.
