A great way to capture attention in a photograph is by considering the shapes that are in the composition. People’s eyes are automatically drawn to follow certain shapes, such as curves and lines. Below are some examples of this practice.
Each Friday we will post a Weekend Photo Focus (also hash tagged on Twitter as #weekendphotofocus) on a certain subject; something to spark your creativity. An empty weekend for a photographer is like an empty canvas – we could always use something to do when we have nothing planned, right?
The premise is simple; snap some photographs over the weekend dealing with the weekend’s focus, and if you send them to us (or Tweet them to us) we will post them up in the follow-up article. Having a focus will help us as artists and photographers to see things that we might not always see, and make us take a shot at something we might otherwise have not.
At the weekends close, we will follow up our weekend focus, with what we found on the Web, and your submissions, that fall in line with our focus. We hope you join in the fun and help us spread the creativity.
