The glass wall

It struck me recently how much effort I put into recreating that third dimension that is lost when you take a 2D picture.

Many of the most attractive subjects I see are very three dimensional, and often the photographic results are disappointing.

It seems to me that we are reduced to using tricks to recreate depth in images. I've been trying to do this for so long that I don't notice the tricks I use any more.

So, I did a ramble about it on my blog today.. http://snaarman.blogspot.co.uk/2012/...dimension.html

Does anyone have other tricks they use to add depth, I wonder..

Pete

Re: The glass wall

Just read your blog and I am very envious of two shots in particular.
The first is the churchyard scene. I seem to recall Don McCullin doing something similar
but without the impact of this one. The second is the trees in mist , Luvverly.

Re: The glass wall

Pete, I have been playing about with layers and pseudo forms of bracketing - but nothing to post of which I am truly pleased with, yet

Re: The glass wall

I find differential focusing and a wide aperture works for me.

One from a series I've produced for an AV sequence completed today.
