Thought for the day: Leading Lines

The current contest in the FB group “We Love Half Moon Bay” is on leading lines.  There were a number of questions by photographers as to what is a leading line and many of the pictures posted to the contest are not, actually, leading lines.

A leading line is a line of ‘something’ in the photograph that leads the viewer’s eye to the subject.  It isn’t a road/trail/path/etc. going through the photograph with little relation to the subject.

These two sets of example pictures may aid you in understanding what are leading lines.

About the Author:

SlickPic was created by a group of like-minded photographers and photography-enthusiasts who wanted a service that wouldn't force them to conform to a certain style or niche, but one that would allow them the freedom to use their photos to tell whatever stories they want. They wanted a service that was capable of storing, showcasing, sharing, and displaying photos in all the different ways people use photos: some are meant just for family, some are taken for friends, and some are made for the world to see.
