THREE Lines, Shapes, and Textures

Lines and shapes make up the world around us. At its core, every photograph is a juxtaposition of shapes, and those shapes contribute to an image’s visual intensity. Surprisingly, shapes, their placement, and the relation among them also have inherent meanings! By learning about the intensity and meaning that lines and shapes create, we can unlock the door to a new level for composing and critiquing photographs.
