Railroad Tracks and Train in Motion Example of Diagonal Leading Lines in Photography

When including diagonal leading lines within a photo, it’s best if you can position them so that they start and finish just above or below the corner of a photo, like the railroad tracks shown here. This will prevent the image from looking like it has been split in half. Because our eyes naturally scan photos from left to right, composing an image to include diagonal leading lines that flow from the bottom left to the top right of a photo is also a great way to compose a shot.

Recommendation: Transportation photos look incredible when they’re printed directly onto metal!
