Curves and the element of elegance


Article Excerpt: “Of all the various aspects of the current topic, curves are my favorite. Curves can be used to add a touch of grace and beauty to a photo. Curves are the element of elegance in photographic imagery…First, curves function similarly to diagonal lines in that they tend to make an image more dynamic…Curves are abundant in nature and allow the photographer to add impact and grace to her image. Some examples are the curve of the ocean’s waterline during a sunset, the curve of a bird’s feathers, and tall bent grass in a late afternoon’s light…However, there is a second function that lines and curves serve: lines and curves can lead the eye of the viewer to strategic points in the image. This is a very effective technique. Photographers can deliberately lay out images such that the lines and curves in the image repeatedly lead the viewer’s eyes back to the point where the photographer wants the viewer’s attention.”~Ron Bigelow from his article Advanced Composition – Part 1
