The Trap Triangle

Reading at the Falls

Upper Falls in Old Man’s Cave, Hocking Hills, Ohio

Trap Triangle Composition

Using three very strong composition objects, the tree, waterfalls and the man, I have created what I call a “trap triangle composition”. The three objects in this image seem to trap my eyes in the scene with the tree in the foreground leading my eyes to the waterfalls and continuing through the image to the man. Then my eyes are led back again to the waterfalls because the man is looking at the falls.

Keep shooting, and look for compositions that will capture your viewers eyes.
