Leading Lines create a path for the viewer’s eye, drawing their attention to the main subject of the composition, or the Leading Lines can be the subject of the scene itself. Common Leading Lines include rivers, roads, fences, and seashores. Leading Lines do not need to be straight, they can be curved. For example, the meandering curve of a river can naturally guide the viewer’s eye through a valley scene to the photo’s main subject.
To apply this rule, find and arrange the elements in your scene to create a path that leads toward the subject or is the subject of the photo.
