Exercise 1.3 (1) Line

Take a number of shots using lines to create a sense of depth. Shooting with a wide- angle lens (zooming out) strengthens a diagonal line by giving it more length within the frame. The effect is dramatically accentuated if you choose a viewpoint close to the line.

Depth I used, as suggested, a wide angle lens to create a sense of depth in the images. Initially  I looked for some locations with defined lines that would accentuate the effect.

St Savious Lane (1 of 1)

In this first image Iused the lines on the road as well as the wall on the left. This creates a clear sense of depth in the image with the road markings creating physical perspective lines in the scene.

Norwich street 2 (1 of 1)

Again, road marking are used but this image was made withe camera much close to the ground further accentuating the sense of the lines moving off into the distance. I can’t help but notice the problems with the vertical lines but I have purposefully not corrected these as I wanted to keep image post processing to a minimum for these exercises as suggested in the course materials.

Norwich Arcade (1 of 1)

The lines are far less obvious in this image but the eye and the brain fill in the gaps and again believe the is a clear sense of depth in this photograph.

line 12 (1 of 1)

In the image above an object within the frame creates the sense of the church being in the distance. It emphasises convergence and line even though it occupies only part off the frame.

Rural line (1 of 1)

A final ‘road into the distance’ image, taken from a low angle. Not straight angular lines but the effect of distance and line  is clearly expressed I believe.
