Next Assignment: Leading Lines

Monday night's class found us outside again to take pictures. Someone mentioned that they would like to learn how to take silhouette shots. The sun was almost a bit too high but we could get the idea if our model (the teacher) was directly in front of it, and we got really low on the ground.
Then I tried to get a lens flare, the colored circles on this picture.
Then we all converged on these weeds that are growing on campus. There aren't a lot of interesting subjects out there to use.

Next week we are to shoot leading lines.
Use leading lines to draw the viewer's eye through the photograph. This is an especially powerful technique to draw the viewer's attention to one or more intended subjects or a single focal point.
BTW - not my picture. Snagged from the internet.
