In outdoor photography, fences offer a convenient element to use to compose an image. From using them to lead the eye along leading lines through to making them an obvious aid to composing with the rule of thirds, using a well placed fence line can make life a lot easier for the photographer. These examples show what can be done with a well placed fence. Use them as inspiration for composing your next outdoor shot.

love the eye and chain link fence shot
Looking out at Lenin’s tomb across Red Square through a fence in the Gum shopping mall.
Great shot, did you get a chance to go inside and see the man himself? Freaky
I’ve got a favourite of my own… Wish it could have been in your beautiful collection! I think Congo is favorite
Great images. I see it’s not just me who loves to shoot with fences.
Taking it all in is my fav for sure…I love when a piece of art seems to have a story to it and the person standing there reflecting on the view really intrigues me for sure!
I also like fences though:
I loved this post, in particular as I was shooting a landscape from my in-laws backyard, and quite frankly without the fence the image would have been dull, dull, dull.
Loving the site!! 🙂
Thanks for this article, never thought as consciously about fences before.
But is is true looking back over some oldies, fences can be used beautifully and consciously. I will keep this in mind definitely.
