Find out how to add depth and scale to your im­ages for max­i­mum im­pact

There are a num­ber of rea­sons why the pho­tos that leap out at us on In­sta­gram or on­line gallery sites do so. It can be the colours, the light, or it could be the com­po­si­tion. If it’s the com­po­si­tion, then there’s an ex­cel­lent chance that the rea­son you find your­self look­ing twice at the photo is be­cause of the way that per­spec­tive has been used to cre­ate a dy­namic, strik­ing im­age that makes you see the world in a whole new way.

Look­ing up at a sub­ject makes it seems im­pos­ing and dra­matic, while look­ing down from an el­e­vated per­spec­tive pro­vides a kind of over­view that can give the im­pres­sion that the scene is re­duced in scale some­how.

Over the next few pages, we’ll be tak­ing an in-depth look at per­spec­tive, ex­plor­ing ex­actly what it is in its var­i­ous forms and how it can be ap­plied to dif­fer­ent sub­jects, from land­scapes to por­traits, to en­sure that even though your pho­to­graphs are flat, you feel as though you could walk right into them!
