Pretty Panoramic Patterns with the Horizon


Leading lines, hypnotic patterns, S and C curves are just some of photography’s long established composition techniques. But do they work on panoramic shots? They certainly do with the Horizon!

The rule of thirds or the golden mean may sound complicated when you’re reading up on photography techniques. Sometimes they really are though, so it’s easier to compose your shots through patterns at first. Leading lines that draw the viewer throughout the whole picture are just some of the basic tenets of photography that we sometimes forget. Curves that stretch from the foreground all the way to the vanishing point in the background are usually included in recipes for great landscape and nature photos.

Upon looking at the Photos page for Horizon shots, these rules and guidelines for composition hold fort as well. Circles and lines that intersect one another in perfect harmony show us the inherent beauty in nature that we sometimes don’t see. All it takes is to open your eyes, breathe in the fresh air and start looking through the lens. You never know what you might see!
