I just returned from a very enjoyable Advanced Flash workshop.
But now a different subject. Depth.
A simple tip: if you want three-dimensionality in your photos, i.e. depth, perspective, then:
- Use a wide-angle lens;
- Include a close-by foreground object;
- Get close to that object.
..and your pictures will have depth.
This example, shot Sunday in Oakville during a “Creative Urban Photography” workshop I designed for Henry’s School of Imaging, has no foreground subject:
Boring. Flat. Uninteresting.
And this one does have a close-by foreground subject:
Clear – no? Which picture do you prefer?
The prosecution rests its case.
