We’re at Week 33 of professional pet photography blog circle Project 52 and the theme of “leading lines.” In photography, leading lines is a composition technique whereby lines are used to draw attention to the main subject. Sometimes leading lines can be subtle and at other times quite obvious. I used the floorboards in the gazebo at our favorite local park as my leading lines drawing the viewer’s attention to my main subject, of course, Mr. Bojangles.
While the weather has been pretty nice this week without it being too hot and little rain, I decided to do something a little different and take Mr. Bojangles for an evening photo shoot, so we could take advantage of the sunset. So, we packed up for our evening photo shoot trip to Pioneer Park in Montgomery. I brought a huge reflector and my favorite lighting modifier, my Westcott Rapid Box Octa, because shooting at this time of day typically requires that some off camera lighting be added.
I’ve taken several pictures of Mr. Bojangles at this park before (well, several is probably an understatement), including some pictures in the gazebo. While at the park the other day for a walk, I got the idea to use the gazebo for my leading lines images. One of the things I really like about this park (besides it being close to home) is that it is never crowded. I also love the different scenic areas that are always perfect for photo shoots with Mr. Bojangles.
Now to see where more lines lead, head over to I Got The Shot Photography, which, sadly, is the extent of this week’s blog circle.
