Basic depth cues- Overlapping, Size Diminution, aerial diffusion, shallow space, deep space
- Overlapping- overlapping of background planes
- Aerial perspective- hazing of more distant planes
Size diminution- figures are objects get farther away from us are seen to get proportionally smaller, the smaller a figure appears, the farther away it is.
Shallow space- little depth between planes/spaces
Deep space- significant distance separates planes. Deep space composition will often use background events to create expectations about what is to happen in the fore-ground.
