Depth

Auckland NZ, 2019 (photo credit: Christian Espinoza)

Like perspective, depth is equally as important.

Our perception of what’s in front of us changes instantly as soon as you add or remove depth.

In photography, painting, and any illustrative or visual medium, depth can help isolate your subject matter from the background or foreground.

Depth will carry the image into reality. In turn, depth can trick us as well.

Although we can calculate depth through mathematical equation and use precise, optical instrumentation to successfully execute this end, the product it creates goes beyond that.

Either depth is present in your work or it isn’t.

What are you really showing us?

Mulder, the Internet is not good for you.
