Photo 52.2: Framed (Diagonal Lines)

This is week 11 of our Photo 52.2 blog circle studying composition. This week we are looking at diagonal lines.

There is a sense of movement and immediacy when diagonal lines are effectively captured in a photograph. When used thoughtfully, they can imbue an image with tension and energy. Diagonal lines can give a sense of soaring structure, or add remarkable depth to an image. As is the case with other kinds of lines, they help direct the eye and encourage the viewer to explore the frame. 

Diagonal lines can add a sense of motion and anticipation. We anticipate you will very much enjoy our collective take this week on the use of diagonal lines.
