LEADING LINES IN LANDSCAPE PHOTOS ARE A NATURAL:

When taking photos of landscapes, it seems it’s not quite so hard to find some “leading lines”. Whether it’s a road, a trail, a stream, there seems to be some great opportunities to put in leading lines into your photo.

The reason leading lines is so important, is that it tends to draw your eyes along the lines to something in the distance. It’s a natural thing to do when you look at a photo like this. Your eyes want to see where this line goes.

Leading lines do not have to be straight. They just need to find a way for your eyes to follow into the back of the photo.

Here are a few more photos that show leading lines, that you can learn from:
