041710 Working with Lines (power lines that is)

Available light... Model- Kyle Whitehead

While we were shooting in Lebanon, OH the group was working with 2 reflectors- one on the ground and one above creating soft light.

There are times when it is impossible to avoid lines in the backgrounds of our photos. Where you choose to place your subject makes all of the difference.

Lines lead your eyes around a composition- in this case to his face... eyes.
Notice the horizontal lines do not come out of his eyes, but his forehead.

Follow the gaze.

The line - eye intersection here works because of the glasses.

Dynamic angled lines work with the energy of laughter.

I had to use the lines because there was an arm attached to that reflector (camera left) and the building ended behind Kyle.

This was fun.
