Class Activity on Perspectives

Class Activity: 1,2,3 point perspective

1 point perspective

Guides your attention and eye towards the vanishing point. The focus is at the end of the vanishing point.

2 point perspective
2 point perspective

The focus seems to be in the middle at the intersection of the lines of the 2 vanishing points.

3 point perspective

Bird’s eye view. Depth is controlled and an illusion is created, where a flat image seems to be 3-dimensional.

Perspective and depth can be created by manipulating foreground, mid-ground and background, ie by overlapping characters in a scene.

In contrast to a flat image where there is no perspective, the image seems fake and dull.
