Lines of Composition 

by Douglas Hoffman on August 19, 2022

My goal as a photographer is to create portraits that evoke emotion.

As part of my creative process, I use tools compositional tools to help me design the image in my minds eye.

Vertical, horizontal, and diagonal lines, as well as lines that repeat, are elements that contribute to the overall image design and composition of a photograph. Notice how your eyes flow through the scene.

The vertical lines of the Whip Coral guide the viewers eye in, through, and out of the image.

Join me for a workshop in Maui, or around the world.
