Lead room


Lead room

In photography, filmography and other visual arts, lead room, or sometimes nose room, is the space in front, and in the direction, of moving or stationary subjects.[1][2] Well-composed shots leave space in the direction the subject is moving.[1] When the human eye scans a photograph for the first time it will expect to see a bit in front of the subject.[3]

For example, moving objects such as cars require lead room.[4] If extra space is allowed in front of a moving car, the viewer can see that it has someplace to go; without this visual padding, the car's forward progress will seem impeded.[4]
