This week Cee examines leading the viewer’s eye through a photo with S curves and Brightest spot, as well as reading a photo from left to right / right to left etc. It is really interesting to see the photos which were Flipped to engage the viewer to linger longer. I have never really thought about the reading left to right and then off the page. I know the compositional rule about leading lines and thirds, brightest spot etc. But I have never thought about flipping a photo to engage the viewer more.
So the first few photos are easy enough; Brightest spot.
These two images have different curves (one left and one right), which one does your eyes linger over more? It’s interesting, does everyone read from left to right or just Western Cultures due to our written language? Or is it a brain thing?
Sorry I couldn’t offer too much attention to this month’s post, pleading a busy hectic life at the moment.
