Waiting for Ubers, Tigers and Fishermen
"If you are not too long, I will wait here for you all my life" -Oscar Wilde
There are numerous composition techniques that photographers use to draw a viewer's attention to an image. One of my favorites is called "leading lines." Basically a leading line in a photograph pulls your eye into, or leads you to the main subject of the image.
Last week I was in Waikiki, Hawaii for a brief business trip (yes, I know, it's crazy, in my last blog post, I was briefly in Germany.) I was looking for a good vantage point to capture sunrise, but since Waikiki Beach faces west, sunrise is a challenge because it's obscured by mountains and Diamond Head in the east.
Once I realized this and the fact that sunrise was looking "meh" (as my teenagers always say), I turned my attention to a pier that I knew would give me great leading lines, especially since there was a gentlemen standing at the very end that I could focus on.
