    Assignment 8: Leading Lines



    Good morning everyone (at least it is morning for me)! We have assignment 8 ready to go today. Travis Chance has asked that we do an assignment on Leading Lines: "visually interesting but compositionally simple." If you need some additional inspiration here is a Wikipedia definition: "Leading Lines are lines that guide your eye through the painting or
    photograph." Have fun shooting, just make sure your submissions are in by April 2, Good Friday for the christian among us, also the day you can stop worrying about getting pranked!





    Sorry about that! I was away for easter weekend, and never really got caught up on stuff this week, so the forum was completely out of my head. Anyway, i have compiled a finalist list, so here is the list with the poll at the bottom.

    Here is a submission...I think the fence constitutes-lines-it leads you in and out of the photo.

    Here's my submission. Sit back, relax and let the leading lines these downtown streets guide you through this aerial shot of Paris. Shot from the Eiffel Tower (EOS Rebel Xti, Tokina 12-24mm f/4)


    ISO 400, f/11, 1/500 @ 12mm

    Downtown Chicago. Canon PowerShot G1, 7mm, 1/500, f/5.6.


    (This shot is several years old, but it was all about "leading lines", and I like it too much to leave it in the cupboard — "old technology", and a hot green pixel, notwithstanding.)

    I'm not sure if this counts, tell me if it doesn't meet the requirements and I'll remove it.


    7D, 300 f/4L IS, 1/320, f9, ISO 400. The "leading lines" in this one are the shadows in the water.
