Photographic Composition – The Lines

Photographic Composition – The Lines

In photo composition we have already seen how lines are key elements. What I have not talked about yet is the meaning of the lines I take in a photograph. In particular

Horizontal lines tranquility
Vertical lines stability, power, strength
Diagonal lines speed, movement, dynamism
Curved lines sensuality, movement

But not just the lines have special meanings the same applies to geometric figures.

Circle Static
Square Balance
Triangle movement

All these meanings are not randomly cast but are the result of our brain’s interpretation of images http://www.akusewa.com/sewa-led-screen-jakarta. Let’s take the case of geometric shapes to spin the three meanings just look at the two images below

The three figures have been turned. The rim is the same, it is static. The square has become a rumble, but the visual perspective is the same it is a middle ground between the circle’s staticity and the dynamism of the triangle.

And for the lines It is the same concept, it is our brain that associates a different meaning to each line. Our eye marks an image moving from left to right. The reason, as has often been said, is related to reading we are used to reading from left to right. Organizing the elements in a photograph along a diagonal that goes from the bottom to the top right upwards means facilitating the reading of photography by our brain. Inserting diagonal elements that are seen as lines allows to guide the human eye to a certain point in the photograph where we can insert the predominant element. This is because our eye in moving is leaning to the line following it.

On the other hand, if the object of simulating a diagonal line from the left summit to the right base, we would create an impediment, distracting attention from what is placed at the base of the line this is because our eye in moving is clash With the line. That becomes a barrier.

The horizontal line is another barrier. It divides the scene and does not allow the eye to pass in the positioned area on the other side. Unless there is an interruption in that case, our eye will go from side to side of the scene just from that interruption. Interruption that can be a door, a hole but also and of course an object (such as a tree or a person) that positioning in the foreground with respect to the line breaks its continuity. Take it from the bottom of a scene you will come to see the high part passing through that discontinuity.

The Objectives – Guide To Buying A Used Lens

The Objectives – Guide To Buying A Used Lens

Buy a lens used is not simple in most cases, in fact we find ourselves in front of the object with a long history, many shots but most wear such as to make void the performance. There remains always the problem of why someone gets rid of a target if there are cases of upgrading of systems from half frame in full frame in which it is necessary to rebuild kit or move from targets to non-stabilized optical stabilized (also cost 10 times more!), there are many cases where the seller wants to get rid of its objective because it is no longer happy. And this may be due to one thousand factors like a ring that resists scratches, dust, misalignment and so on.

And ‘good thing akusewa, when you buy a used, do a series of tests before the first seller to close the deal. At least if you want groped not to do business in those optics sold it!

The first control is the simplest one the appearance. Definitely a goal of living will microabrasions but these little importanto as not affecting the optical functions. Obviously, if in addition to micro-abrasions found broken, missing pieces or dents is the case of let it go.

The external lenses should be completely free of scratches and signs and if you look into the sun, must show an iridescent purplish patina (coating – anti-reflective coating) uniform. If there are white areas there is a problem.

Open and close several times the diaphragm and watch the goal. A diaphragm closed the hole should be as round as possible, without lamellae who can not shake like any other. A fully open aperture, you do not see mold, dull areas or water fogging inside the lens. The powder is instead normal, even in the new one you can observe.

Always on the diaphragm, check that the sliding of the slats is smooth and not jamming if he resists forget it. By the way, to change the aperture do not need a camera body, just use the lever that you find on the inside of the lens, as shown in the figure.

There must be no oxidation on the screws and electrical contacts, there must not be fat or oil near the gear, including two focus rings and zoom or aperture blades. The screws must be new, or rather never opened if even a screw shows signs of opening, it means that the target has been repaired, its value falls drastically. In addition of course to having possible problems as the formation of condensation.

23 Modern Houses Fantastic


The modern house is changing and is doing it quickly. Forget the forms to which you were accustomed to discover totally incredible homes. Everything has to adapt to the new demands of our contemporary life is sometimes easy, other times it can be a big failure. We chose to present 25 houses by the controversial design which we are sure will inspire you in some way!

Are you ready for this trip without Via ticket!

The house in the nature

This detached house blends with nature in a harmonious way, although the forms are not natural. It is the wood that makes the difference and that almost blends in the house with the surrounding environment. The simple and geometric line allow the villa to have an important presence, especially thanks to the raised terrace on the front.

The house open but closed

Lines and shapes are clearly modern mold. Of particular interest is the provision of open spaces, the house in fact shows a blatant duality on one side a more open area, the other area more reserved and protected by shading structures.

The house of transparencies

This villa creates a strong bond with the outer space through the large windows presenting the back. In this way, not only you can better appreciate the surrounding landscape from the inside, but it is possible also to accommodate a greater quantity of natural light compared to normal windows.

The house like a box

In this case, they abandon the extra large measures in favor of smaller volumes. The material approach remains mostly unchanged with much use of concrete for the cantilevered volumes, then wood and glass to top it all. The result is a house that looks like a small game for kids made of boxes.

The house that emphasizes the spaces

The walls of this facade give it a dynamism and an incredible lightness, the central black wall breaks decisively the horizontality of the building, allowing to rest the eye to appreciate the access to the house, with a white cover a pergola and a beautiful wooden door.

Technological home but natural

A modern house combines aesthetics with functionality. With this project, the two principles go hand in hand The German project sees the union of an essential but elegant style, using advanced building technologies for home insulation and energy efficiency at the top of the category.

The modern house and common

The style is typical of the villa outside the city sloping roof, a small terrace overlooking the garden and modern architecture. Another detail to be observed regarding the large sliding glass doors create the first level for the living area.
