Curves

Home > Photography > Members' Photos: Curves

While a straight line establishes a clear direction, with reference to the horizontal and vertical edges of a photograph, a curve introduces a progressive change in direction.

Straight lines tend to lead the eye directly into or through a photo, whereas curves perform this function with a gentler, fluid-like flow.

Curves can also serve to enclose space and effectively concentrate attention on a specific area within an image.

The following photos show how DIG members have explored the use of curves in their photos.
