“In life, as in art, the beautiful moves in curves” Edward Bulwer-Lytton
In photography, there’s no right or wrong way to compose a shot. However, there’s just something naturally satisfying when curves are present in a picture. Like we’ve seen in the #GoodChallenge: Looking for Circles, some shapes and lines have a strong effect on the viewer; in both paintings and photographs, our eyes tend to follow lines and other edges in the frame. Because of their shape, curves are a visual tool that can gently take the viewer around a scene, passing all the elements along the way.
