Note: This is the final installment of a 10-part series where I explore visual concepts that can help you while in the field. These concepts are not intended to be a how-to guide; rather, they are ways of helping one think about the visual craft of landscape photography.

Welcome to Part 10 of Exploring Visual Concepts. Lines, Shapes, and Contrasts are the building blocks of any successful landscape image. More than anything, lines and shapes direct the viewer's eye through an image. Similar, but used a bit differently, contrast does the same, but instead of moving the eye, it directs the eye to a specific location.

Welcome to Part 10 of Exploring Visual Concepts. Lines, Shapes, and Contrast are the building blocks to any successful landscape image as they are utilized to move the eye through a scene. Lines and shapes in particular move or steer the eye through and image whereas contrasts direct the eye immediately to a particular portion of the frame.
