Straight Lines

Home > Photography > Members' Photos: Straight Lines

Straight lines can play a useful role in photography.

A picture's straight edges form a horizontal and vertical frame of reference for the image content.

Parallel straight lines highlight linear perspective in an image, to create a perception of depth.

This exercise involved making one or more straight lines the subject of a photo. The majority of straight lines that DIG members found were associated with man-made objects and a sample of these is displayed below.
