Depth- Deep and Shallow

This is a photo of my two dogs. I love how the lighting emphasizes them, and puts them as the main focal point. Even though the snow is very light, the small shadows that are there, create the form and texture for the background. This is a deep depth photo.

Pete and Paul are the two larger white horses in front, and behind them is a horse our family is breaking. They have a lot of detail, but so do the mountains behind them. You can see even to the tiny trees on the mountain, showing the depth and detail at the same time. This is a deep depth photo.

This piano has only one small section that is in focus while the rest remains just a little blurry. It draws your eye to that particular area, and the perspective leads it through the rest of the picture. I love the soft colors of browns and reds that make this piece feel like home. This is a shallow depth photo.

My brother Dallin Tolman is the one about to shoot the basketball. He is in the most focus, while everyone else remains still identifiable, but not attached to too much detail. By creating this depth, the viewer is forced to look at Dallin first, and the white that he is wearing makes him stand out even more. This is a shallow depth photo.
