Placement PLACEMENT 

This technique involves placing the subject of the photograph off to the side of the frame and away from the center of the picture. This forces the viewer to move completely around the picture frame. This was taken from Coyote Hills

Leading Lines LEADING LINES

Using lines, pathways, or curves leads the viewer to the subject of the photograph. These leading lines create a sense of depth in the picture. This was taken at Lake Elizabeth.
