CAPTURING THE SPOTLIGHT

IMG_3175

Work forms so they convey a three-dimensional illusion on a two-dimensional surface. When taking a photograph of a scene, you need to keep in mind that the photograph will flatten the entire scene into two dimensions, and not make the mistake of painting the scene as it appears in the photograph. You need to have the composition balance out as the still life artist portrays in their painting showing height, width and depth.
This could also apply to landscape artist, who think in terms of spheres, cylinders, cubes and cones when rendering a shape showing the highlight and shadow giving an illusion of three dimensional forms.
