Photo Lesson: Just ducky

9 12 2013

Anytime you notice an S-curve in your composition, relish it! An S-curve is an imaginary line in a photograph that resembles the letter “s.” This serendipitous composition of ducks leads the viewer in at the top, meanders into the middle, then curves back out again—which adds motion to the image. Look for opportunities to utilize the S-curve’s soft, flowing lines to help create separation in a frame or make the S-curve your focal point. And don’t stop with landscape photography—the S-curve can be used in posing subjects for portrait photography as well.
