Today, we learned about the use of perspective to create the illusion of depth within a frame. In a frame, there can be multiple perspectives or no perspective; but in creating depth, the commonly known perspectives are one-point perspective, two-point perspective and three-point perspective. The numbers suggested the amount of vanishing points apparent in that one frame.
As a class exercise, we have to walk around ADM building to capture those three perspectives using our cameras. Let’s see what I take:
There is one vanishing point here; that is, at the top of the stairs, which makes it the focus.
There are two vanishing points here, and they intersect at the corner. Our eyes are naturally drawn to the corner.
There are three vanishing points now. Usually to create the three-point perspective, we take picture from high eye level or low eye level.
