i am a newbie and trying to get a 3 dimensional image.
thanks for looking
As you know, when you shoot an image, you are taking something that has 3 dimensions (height, width and depth) and are reducing it to 2 dimensions, height and width like a piece of photo paper or a computer image. You can't get a 3 dimensional image unless you understand light and how to use light and shadow and depth of field to achieve that third dimension. That third dimension is DEPTH and it is naturally missing on a piece of photo paper or on a computer monitor. You must trick the viewer's eye into seeing that third dimension, that depth, which isn't really there. In this photo, there is no depth. Everything is flat because you used light that is straight on and it killed any hope of dimensionality that could be created. If you can master light, you can get the 3 dimensional quality that you are seeking in your images.
