The Daily Photo #42- February 11th, 2016
Using converging lines is a useful compositional technique when shooting architecture, especially when there are multiple lines leading the eye toward the vanishing point. It almost feels like you are getting pulled toward the point of convergence, adding visual interest to a shot that is really very simple.
I wanted a deep depth of field so I was shooting at f/9. I was careful to not focus too far away which could cause me to lose focus in the foreground. The other aspect I was paying attention to was symmetry. I found after looking for a short time that there wasn’t much symmetry going on after all. Everything is just slightly off from being symmetrical, and I think the shadow in the lower right side helps contribute to the illusion of symmetry.
