As the course book states, diagonals can be created fairly easily by altering the camera angle, but they are often found naturally anyway. These shots were again taken on my walk around the Pantiles in Tunbridge Wells.
King Charles the Martyr Church, Tunbridge Wells. I liked the angle of the pews and the way they are lit by the window.
I liked this because its another image which has a combination of lines both vertical and diagonal. In this case however I think it is the diagonal that is stronger because it is a more dynamic active line.
The two strong diagonals of the sandwich board help give it a feeling of solidity.
Another shot where the choice of angle has determined the diagonal. My eye was drawn not so much by the gold points but the round bases of them. I’m not sure if the limited depth of field works in hindsight or whether it would have been preferable to have them all in focus
As in the previous exercise on subsequent trips I was looking out for examples and came up with these:-
Servant’s bells at Calke Abbey. Because of their height on the wall you have no choice other than to take them at some sort of angle but here their diagonal line is compounded by the signs underneath.
A deliberately created diagonal of the bridge at Stowe. I wanted a different take on this so shot at a very low angle
The converging diagonals of the row of trees and their protective fencing attracted me to this shot, taken at Stowe.
This is more of an implied diagonal line (of the spigots of the barrels) again taken at Stowe.
