Family Portraits | Lowville Ontario

This family portrait session was so fun beacause first, it was with one of my favourite families in the world and second, they just wanted me to capture a family day at the park. There were 14 people in all so I had lots of fun chasing them all around. Here are some of the shots I caught of the kiddies.

Photography Tip # 25
Leading Lines

This is a compositional tip that I am still playing with myself. What it refers to is the use of lines in a photograph to lead the viewer's eye somewhere. Maybe they will lead their eye off into the distance, may they will lead their eye right to the subject. The lines can be made of anything, a road, a river, a shadow, a building or whatever happens to be there. Here are some examples I have found in my past blog posts:

The railings in the fence almost form an arrow pointing at the couple here

The combination of the shadows and the converging pathway lead your eye right through this image

more shadows and rails helping out

here the bricks do the trick

cars have lots of lines

and finally, one from the post above

Like I said, this is one that I am still experimenting with, so join me in the fun!
