During 2020 I ran a photography challenge over on my travel blog looking at different techniques throughout the year. I was not expecting that the year itself would prove to be a challenge in that the Covid-19 pandemic hit us and not only put paid to any travel plans, but also altered the way in which we conducted our lives. This year I am going to look at those techniques again using new photographs as and when I get the opportunity.
April was about another of the six visual keys which help to create a great photograph. This month was all about lines. Lines are everywhere in our world. Just look around you. Seek them out to add visual impact to your photographs. Try and develop an eye for finding and placing lines in your composition.
Here are more of my photos from this year where I was consciously making a decision as to how to frame the lines in the image:
If you would like to have a look at the different techniques covered throughout the year then you can see them here. Please note that I am not running this as a challenge, but merely using the old one as inspiration for my photography this year.
I could live in that riverboat! Some great and interesting examples, Jude, but those are rhododendron blossoms fallen so prettily on the cobbles. Have a lovely weekend!
Trust you to notice that! Yes they are from the Cornish Red. I shall edit the caption. There are some extremely nice houseboats along that stretch of the Thames. I suspect we couldn’t afford any of them 😉
Not a one, but in all seriousness, would I want to live there? Sorry for the nit picking 😮💕
I couldn’t live in the south east again, far too crowded and constant traffic on the roads. No worries about the flowers, I knew they didn’t look like camellias, but I had forgotten that the rhodies were flowering at that time.
A great collection here. That maze is certainly taking the line for a walk!
Haha… love your description!
Great post. Like your tips on how to enhannce your photos and draw the eye to shapes, angles, lines. Beautiful photos – I enjoyed them all.
Thanks Peggy. I like having a focus in the back of my mind.
Now I have to fast to beat Jo living on that lovely houseboat!
Great photos, and excellent examples, Jude.
Best wishes, Pete. x
I think we’d all like to live there!
That houseboat is enormous!! I can’t imagine actually going on the river in it. Enjoyed all the photos and commentary.
A lot of these houseboats are permanent structures, they don’t actually move.
That makes sense.
Nice bench Jude!
This post is full of great tips, thank you!
These are all beautiful. And Carol beat me to the bench comment. It’s a particularly fine one.
I still cannot resist a fine bench 🤣
Me too! You got me seeing them everywhere.
I agree! I have photographed a variety of benches over the years!
I ran a bench photo challenge back in 2015 and it was very popular, amazing how many of us photograph benches!
Beautiful examples of all the concepts you discuss! My favourite is the photo of the cobblestones!
