weekend hashtag project: #whplayers
this weekend the challenge is to make images and videos that play with layers and depth, as in this featured photo from @mao_kokubu
. here are some tips:
build depth in your image. accentuate the background or foreground elements in your image or video. whether it’s a closeup detail of a giant leaf, an out of focus building on the horizon or a car passing through the foreground of your frame, objects can come together to create a layered composition.
look for pre-existing layers. think about documenting your subject behind interesting layers, like a wire fence, or through a window with interesting reflections.
get detailed. you can embody a sense of depth and layers in the details of an intricate hairstyle, the colorful layers of a tall cake or even what lies beneath a corner of peeling paint.
