Framing the Lines

Photographic composition often has the challenge of how to turn the  two dimensional into something that has depth and seems a bit three dimensional.

Framing the Lines
by Michael Doyle

Doorways, windows and rock formations
Layer our photos with their information
Framing the world in depth and dimension
Adding to the zest with interesting precision

There are leading lines in the roads
Well traveled as photographic journeys unfold
Tools of focus guide the eye in composition
Catalysts of involvement without too much imposition

Doors open their focal of containment
Offering involvement deep in their entertainment
Let's never forget we need to craft the light
Finding the story and telling it just right

Everything in a photo is meant to draw in 
Drawing in the eyes just to find the eyes again
Truth told that eyes are the Holy Grail
Of making the connection to our tales

Eyes are, indeed, the very windows of the soul
A good photographer knows and keeps this in control
It's all about what makes the very best connection
And its up to the photographer's soulful detection

Trying to get three dimensions in a 2D world
While bringing a bit of order to chaos unfurled
Is essentially the key to the photographer's lot
With it's multiple elements to never be forgot
