Creative Captures Week 3: Leading Lines and Portraits

Last week’s photography assignment was to photograph a fence, with the purpose of exploring the concept of leading lines. There are two types of fences in our neighborhood – brand new wood fences that appear outside of homes and barbed wire fences that appear around areas of undeveloped land. I didn’t feel particularly inspired by either, but opted to photograph a barbed wire fence when I came across one that looked somewhat worn and covered by vines.

Last week was the first time that I also completed the extra credit assignment (yay, me!), which involved shooting a portrait using only a portion of the body. The purpose of this exercise was to explore the use of negative space. For this assignment, I took the following pictures of my children playing in our yard:
