The Bethadilly 52 Week 4 – Depth

creating depth in my images is one of my favorite ways to create interest.  i find that depth intrigues the viewer and pulls them into the image, as their eye explores what is in focus and what it intentionally out of focus.  as i picked up my camera for week 4 of the bethadilly 52, i found myself wanting to create depth for a whole new reason.  i am always stumbling upon learning moments with my photography and today i found that depth is a great way to minimize clutter or distracting elements.  not that these toys aren’t absolutely beautiful.  i mean, lets be real, every toy i buy has to be photographable as well as educational.  however, sometimes no matter how pretty the toy, toys can be distracting to the viewer.  by using depth in this image, i allowed the viewer to still understand what was going on in the image, but kept the focus on my baby girl.  while bright color isn’t something i normally have in my photographs, i like the subtle pops of color that is in the image, yet softened through the blur.
