Photographs and planer geometry. It's part of what it means to have an eye for a photo!

Example of light and shadow to enhance depth by Richard WeisserOne of the most elemental concepts of photography is often one of the most overlooked principles in many photographs. And that often misunderstood concept is the planer nature of the photograph.

In photography, you are actually capturing a three dimensional subject and transforming it into a two dimensional plane. And the simple truth is that not all subjects translate well as depth is removed from the formula.

So the savvy photographer seeks elements that will enhance the apparent depth of the finished picture. Proper use of light and shadows is one way, as well as including both foreground elements and distant objects.

Practice "thinking in 2D" and learn to "see" your photos in your minds eye as information that needs tweaking and adjusting. And make those decisions BEFORE you open the shutter.

There isn't a photo editing program in the world that can make up for poor composition!

Great tips Richard.  Now if I would just get that camera repaired or replaced.  It's on my to do list but it keeps getting bumped to the next day!

Richard...I have resigned myself to try and get only a few good pictures.  That would be ME setting up my camera and having someone take a good picture of MY trophy fish before I release it!

I can never seem to get the right lighting. But every now and again I just get lucky! Good thing I always know where I can find a beautiful picture

I read all this stuff and then when I get out to take a picture it just goes out of my head.
