One of the obstacles that all photographers face is figuring out how to make their images look less two-dimensional and more three-dimensional. Of course, this is easier said than done because, unlike our eyes which see everything in 3-D, our cameras can only muster 2-D.

However, there are some tricks you can use to try to boost the depth of your images. And, by doing so, you can make your images appear as though they have greater dimension than they actually do. Let’s review six of our favorite tricks for doing just that.

  1. Leading Lines
  2. Framing
  3. Point of View
  4. Connect the Foreground, Midground, and Background
  5. Shadows
  6. Shallow Depth of Field
