Lines in photographs are impactful elements, can assist in creating mood, as well as aid in leading the viewers’ eye through the image.

Vertical lines can convey a variety of moods, including growth, stability, size, strength and power.

Experiment with accentuating vertical lines by shooting with your camera in portrait orientation, as this emphasizes the vertical lines and lengthens the subject.

Practice keeping the vertical lines parallel with the edges of your frame.

Placing strong vertical lines on the imaginary lines of the Rule of Thirds can further strengthen the visual impact of your photograph.

Look out for vertical lines that are repeated, as this can form patterns with impact.
