What are leading lines in photographic composition? World renowned photographer, Jim Zuckerman, shows you the technique as he composes a lighthouse image in coastal Maine.

Jim starts out with a wide angle lens, his composition following the fence line as it leads your eye to the lighthouse. For optimum resolution, he recommends shooting in RAW format to protect the highlights and to manipulate the colors and exposure in post production. He shows you how to select the correct lens aperture and shutter speed, and then takes you through the process of creating an HDR image.

Travel to Maine with pro shooter, Jim Zuckerman, who shows you the importance of leading lines in your compositions.
