Digital Camera World - - COVER STORY -

THIS ef­fect re­lies on the fact that ob­jects tend to get lighter and also have less contrast the fur­ther away they are, due to wa­ter vapour and pol­lu­tion in the

at­mos­phere. This means we as­sume ob­jects that con­tain deep blacks are closer to the viewer than lower-contrast and lighter ones, which helps give the ap­pear­ance of depth in your com­po­si­tion. Shoot­ing from a dis­tance and us­ing a tele­photo lens will em­pha­sise this ef­fect, al­though you still need the right at­mo­spheric con­di­tions. It‘s most pro­nounced in misty, hazy con­di­tions, and also when you are shoot­ing into the light. So these sit­u­a­tions are per­fect for us­ing ae­rial per­spec­tive in your im­ages. In contrast, thick fog can hide the en­tire back­ground, pro­duc­ing a more two-di­men­sional ef­fect.
