Depth in the Arch – Excerpts from a Photo Shoot

A lot of my photography has depth to it. There is something appealing about a picture that pulls you in and makes you want to go further into the shot, whether it be a road that goes into the distance, a path or trail. One of my favorites is a shot I did in New Orleans years ago looking down a sidewalk for many blocks…your eye goes into the depth if it’s presented well. All of that said, I have attached a series of shots from a photo shoot a few weeks back (same shoot and area where I was laying on the sidewalk taking shots of the sun through the trees – reference The Sun in the Trees post).  I’m starting outside of the architectural feature with these shots and narrowing in on the window. It’s a series of four pictures in color, black and white and then in sepia tones. Where do you see the most depth and does the black and white or sepia change any of that?

      Hi Lorrie…My preference is 1 and 5, but it’s all perception and everyone looks at things differently. The architecture is very nice….it’s a covered walkway in a desert garden. Thanks!!

        So far the summer is not looking that great but thankfully I still have some sun tan left from India 🙂

        It is a day off here tomorrow, so a long weekend (probably not the same over there?). Anyways, have a great end of the week!

        Thanks….our summer has already started off hot….108 here yesterday…same today and then back around 100 through next week. What is day off tomorrow for? We had Monday off for Memorial Day. ( to honor all the people who have died protecting our country) That always kicks off summer here in the states.

        Hi, I actually went to google to find the exact meaning, so here you go about the Ascension: “the resurrected Jesus was taken up to Heaven in his resurrected body, in the presence of eleven of his apostles, occurring 40 days after the resurrection..”

        Wow, 108 is hot! I translated and that is what I had in India. I like heat but that may be just about my limit.

        ps we had barely 50 Fahrenheit today… not that cool…

        The heat here is dry, so I’m good up to about 112…that’s the desert. Is India humid? Never been and that’s my impression. My wife and I are just going through our first summer here in the desert, moved from San Diego close to the ocean…always in the 70’s very nice weather!! Sounds chilly over there!!

        Thanks for you support!!

        It depends where in India. Rajasthan (near Pakistan) is very dry. Calcutta (near Bagladesh) is humid, as is the South in general.

        It is interesting for you to experience a new place to live in -how do you like it so far compared to San Diego?

        Very different….we are use to having an ocean close….but the winter was nicer than the coast…warmer and we do like the dry air. Within Phoenix itself, the tropical plants and the type of buildings are the same as southern california. How do you like Paris?

    Kirt for some reason the color seems to show the most depth for me. I love this type of photography, the drawing in. I will be on the watch for arches!
