This week is Week 18 of professional pet photography blog circle Project 52 and our assignment of using diagonal lines. We continue to work from the book “The Visual Toolbox: 60 Lessons for Stronger Photographers” by David DuChemin, and this week expand on our exploration of lines, as they are a major component of what we see. In this chapter we specifically explored diagonal lines and the increasing or decreasing energy they imbue in the image.

Mr. Bojangles and I headed out to our favorite county park for the first time this year. I’d love to report it was because the weather was gorgeous, but that wasn’t the case. It was an overcast, chilly day and that pretty much has been the story all week. Whoever ordered the winter-like chill can take it back. Despite the weather we decided to go to Sharon Woods for this assignment in hopes that we could find some diagonal lines to help us complete our task. And, we did. While we were walking, I heard the sound of crashing water and knew that the waterfall was just what we needed. 

Now to see more diagonal lines, head over to Northeast PA Pet Photographer, Elaine Tweedy, and then around the rest of the blog circle until you end up back here.
