Finding Depth with Indoor Light
Learn to create more emotional and connecting images with depth.
Why do we want to create depth in our images? Depth is the breath of life to pictures. Rather than looking at a totally flat image, the viewer can hopefully see what you saw, and feel some of what you felt. Adding depth can create a storytelling component, it can add mystery, rawness and intrigue. The more alive or real an image is, the more likely it will connect with those looking at it. If you want to create powerful, moving images adding depth into them is an important element to add.
