Compositional Lines In Real Estate Photography

November 7th, 2012

Shane Law from the Sydney, AU area has written an interesting post on his blog on the subject of compositional lines.

Shane’s post reminds me of the wonderful lectures my art history professor at University of Oregon used to give. She would discuss how the famous artists intended to have the viewers eye move through the image and why and how all the classic masterpieces work the way they do.

This subject is important when you are attempting to create strong images. I think it helps to think about composition and what it takes to make a strong image. Some would claim there are rules of composition while others approach composition as a totally intuitive subject. Fact is there is probably a lot of both.

Shane’s post goes a long way to get you thinking about composition. I can’t say I agree with all of his conclusions or choices but the important thing is to start thinking about these issues.

  • Great post! Thanks for sharing. The acknowledgment of compositional lines and “blocks,” as noted, is often forgotten and difficult to remedy in post production.

  • No matter what the subject matter, when looking through the camera lens and creating an image for capture – there are only two things that matter – Composition and Exposure. After that it is all art. A well composed and exposed image is so pleasing that you are not sure why you like the picture but it is really the difference between two images of the same subject.

  • Great Post. Clear, simple, practical. Thanks

  • Good advice. Always keep in mind the “rule of thirds” and let your eye wonder over the scene. You might find the perfect composition.

  • Hello,
    Amazing post! Really true no matter what the theme matter, when looking through the camera lens and creating an image for capture – there are only two things that matter – work and experience. After that it is all art .You might find the perfect composition. Whenever you are looking at lens you find the picture to be perfect and anybody want that.
