Best 5 Practical Tips to Improve Your Images As a Casual Photographer

2. Use leading lines

This refers to a technique where a viewer is drawn to your main subject by lines that lead to it (pretty much like leading a horse to water). A leading line paves an easy pathway for the eye to navigate through the different elements in an image. This can be easily applied in the street, on architectural shots and urban compositions where lots of natural lines are available to exploit.

The bicycles and the railing are used as leading lines to guide the viewer to the main subject of the images — the canal houses in the background as they light up in the evening in Amsterdam.
