This Week’s Photo Challenge: Leading Lines

We know that leading lines are lines in an image that lead the viewer from the foreground of the image to the background.

Your job in this photo is to show the best, most compelling example of leading lines.

And do it all before Wednesday, February 10th, 2010.

posted to your flickr accounts and in my drop box.

Today’s Plan: Advanced Track

Your next assignment will be the photo series project. You will take five photos of a similar theme. Scroll down and check out a few of the different photo series examples I have posted below.

Your photo series could be about bankers with endless money, or it could be about High School Football, or it could be a series documenting the plight of the homeless. Or about Dilapidated old buildings in your neighborhood. Or empty office parks because of the economy. It could be a series of pictures that document hope though the empty parking structures of Downtown Portland.

Once you have taken the pictures, you will write a 250 word piece that ties the whole series together. In the written portion you will talk about the project as a whole, and how each photo contributes to that theme.

Today is a great day to come up with ideas for your Photo Series Project.
