Leading Lines

ImageIn this picture I used the compositional technique known as “leading lines”. Leading lines are used by artist and photographers alike to capture the attention of a gazer; and use the “natural lines” in the photo to lead their eye to the primary focus the artist/photographer is trying to convey. My main focus in the photo above is of myself sitting on the bleacher, using the lining of the bleacher as my “natural line” almost like a prop. Its pretty cool to see how much this impacted my photo! To see how such a simple, unsophisticated main point can be portrayed in such a way just using lines, that seem so unintentional.
