Leading Lines are a great tool for incorporating multiple rules into your photography. The idea of leading lines is create an entry point for your audience and purposefully guide them to an other part of the the photo. The guide (or path) is usually created with physical elements or negative space.

Leading lines is effective when combined with Viewpoint changes and Rule of Thirds. Even using pops of colour in a leading lines photo can add dramatic effect.
