How to Use Lines in Photo Composition

An S-curve, like the one formed by this photo, creates a sense of motion, depth, and perspective in your photos. Lines are key compositional elements in photography. This tutorial will show you how to use lines most effectively in your photos.

You will learn how to:

Keep horizons level.
Use repetition to convey symmetry and contrast.
Use diagonal lines to draw the eye, and convey motion. Remember, contrasting diagonals have a chaotic effect.
Use converging lines by placing the convergent point at one of the target spots for the rule of thirds, and the eye is powerfully drawn to this location.
Effectively use curved lines. For example, S-curves give a great feel of depth, motion, and detail.
