Using Converging Lines in Photography
In a previous post I mentioned using diagonal lines in images. Now let’s look at converging lines.
Converging lines guide our eyes and help us focus on the subject. They also enhance image depth. Here are a few examples.
Below there’s an image of a wedding venue. The rows of tables create converging lines leading to the screen in the background and which shows an engagement image of a wedding couple.
Sometimes converging lines show depth or height. Sometimes they can converge to create angles and triangles.
Below is an image taken at the Liberty State Park train terminal.
And sometimes there can be several converging lines, not only two.
In the image posted below, the rows of chairs, the walls and the images on the walls create converging lines. The image was taken on World AIDS Day 2018, at the OCCCA opening night of Kurt Weston‘s photo exhibition, Remember: An AIDS Retrospective.
Again, these are only a few examples of when, where, why and how to use converging lines in photography.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
