4. Camera angle
Experiment with perspective (camera angle) — this way you can both show your subject in a new, unexpected way and also tell a whole story without overstuffing the frame.
5. Negative space
There are two spaces in every image:
- positive space (it shows the main subject);
- negative space (usually it’s the background).
Don’t forget to keep an eye on what is happening in the negative space; you want it to emphasize your main subject, not cramp it.
Depth will give your shot a more three-dimensional and rich feel. There are few features that can help you achieve it:
- parallel lines, which come to one point in the distance;
- gradually dissolving fog will make your photo seem layered;
- tone (volume is transmitted through color: darker objects appear closer, and lighter objects appear farther away);
- depth of field (if you blur the background, clear objects will appear closer, while fuzzy objects will seem more distant).
