The effect of the lines in composition on the screen can not be ignored, utilize the lines can make the composition has more depth and vitality.
The effect of the lines in composition on the screen can not be ignored
Let me give a simple example:
This is a good landscape photo, I really like this photo, but I also find the photo with another different style.
Does the photo above look more three-dimensional? This is the sense of depth created by the application of the lines in the composition. Convergence lines intersect at infinity, the original parallel lines of equal length becomes gradually shorter visually, the space distance is also smaller. These lines create the sense of distance and space, I mark out these lines, so we can see its role in it:
Certainly, not every landscape has obvious lines of the composition, for the real photographing, the composition needs our imagination and creation.
In the following landscape photo, the two triangles in the foreground point the distant sunset and the extrusive rocks on sea surface.
▲ The point line here is hidden line, it is not real, but the shape of the foreground at the bottom of the screen determines its direction.
Observe this photo again with different point of views
Observed again with a different point of view at this picture, we can also draw a different conclusion. Crop out the original image, we will get a photo with different horizontal and vertical ratio and prominent horizontal line. The special horizontal and vertical ratio and the distant horizontal line create a sense of stable equilibrium:
The most important and most obvious line is the horizontal line
▲The most important and most obvious line is the horizontal line, and the wave pattern with balanced horizontal line also makes the screen more dynamic.
Stable horizontal line can bring calmness and tranquility
So we can conclude:
Stable horizontal line can bring calmness and tranquility;
Diagonal can bring excitement and vitality;
In landscape photography, wide-angle lens will make the lines between foreground and infinity more obvious. You can also use photo editor software to do some photo retouch on the photo in post-processing to shape the lines.
