Converging Lines: Weekly Photography Challenge - Digital Photography School

Converging Lines: Weekly Photography Challenge

This week we published a tutorial on using converging lines in the composition of your photos so today we thought it might make a good theme for our weekly challenge.

Empty road

So – your challenge is to grab your camera and head out to find some converging lines to shoot – and then to share those photos with us.

You can see some examples of converging lines in shots in the post from earlier in the week but as you get out and about you’re sure to see them all around you – once you start looking you’ll be amazed how many they are.

Once you’ve taken your converging lines photo upload it to your favourite photo sharing site either share a link to them even better – embed them in the comments using the our new tool to do so.

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSCONVERGE to help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.

Also – don’t forget to check out some of the great shots posted in last weeks Critique Yourself challenge – there were some great shots submitted.

    Truly NOT a great picture, but it accidentally taught me that converging lines were present in every wall, sidewalk, street or corridor. Despite what my eyes were telling me, the camera told me that the lines converged so the lines in the wall converged (... to a garbage can, oh well).
