How to add a sense of three-dimensionality to the picture in street photography

  In everyday street photography, the more three-dimensional images are often more attractive. Therefore, when shooting on the street, how to add a three-dimensional effect to the picture is the research aspect of many photographers who are new to street shooting. But often street scenes are more complicated and random. It is not easy to add a three-dimensional feeling to the picture in this kind of scene. Let us share with you how to add a sense of three-dimensionality to the picture in street shooting.

   First, a large aperture and shallow depth of field are used to create a three-dimensional effect. In the case of shallow depth of field, the main body of the picture will be separated from the background, making the picture more three-dimensional. In addition to using a shallow depth of field to separate the main body of the picture from the background, you can also use a shallow depth of field to process the foreground so that the foreground is out of focus, and the subject is set off by a blurred foreground, which can also achieve the purpose of adding a three-dimensional feeling to the picture.

  Secondly, it uses lines to add a three-dimensional effect to the picture. On the street, different architectural elements are full of lines, even the street or the building itself is a kind of line. Trying to integrate these lines into the picture can increase the depth of the picture, thereby making the picture more three-dimensional and improving performance. At the same time, the lines can guide the viewer’s sight to a certain extent, making the picture more layered.

   There is another point, which is to use light and shadow to add a three-dimensional effect to the picture. Generally speaking, the texture of highlights and shadows displayed by metering or side backlighting can better reflect the three-dimensional sense of the picture. But in this kind of light, the picture is prone to high contrast, overexposure or underexposure. At this time, you can try to use the Active D-Lighting function of the Nikon camera to shoot, even if shooting high-contrast scenes in a backlit environment, dynamic D-Lighting can also preserve the details of highlights and shadows. Compared to high dynamic range, which is only suitable for shooting static subjects, Active D-Lighting is better for capturing moving subjects.

When shooting on the street, if you want to better add a three-dimensional effect to your work, long framing or waiting is always unavoidable. The Nikon Z 6 is not only compact, but also provides good operability. The camera’s grip design is easy to hold firmly. The operation controllers such as the sub-selector, AF-ON button, ISO button, and exposure compensation button have been carefully designed so that they can be operated quickly when shooting.

   Of course, according to different shooting environment and light, there will be different shooting methods, which requires us to keep practicing and try different shooting techniques to get the desired effect.
