LAYERING IMAGES with a FRAME
Create a three dimensional image by layering parts of an image – use at least 4 layers.
YOU WILL NEED AT LEAST TWO IMAGES
1. Use an image from your last roll of film that has objects at various distances from the camera
• If you have no images that work, shoot a digital image
2. Print (or Photocopy) the image as many times as you want to have layers.
3. Cut out successively more and more on each successive layer.
4. Use an extra photo as a top layer, that has a door or window to create even more depth
• Make it appear as if you are looking through your top layer to see what is in behind
• Make sure the relative sizes of objects make sense!
5. Create a Frame for the image to sit in.
6. Paste the layers one over the next, with small pieces of Cardboard acting as spacers.
• Do NOT use too much cardboard – you should NOT see it from the front.
KEY CRITERIA: Clean edges cutting based on distance, good frame, cardboard not visible from front
Add an extra element or frame to your photo that was not in the original.
– OBJECT: A person, bench, parking meter, car, or whatever fits
– Makes sure the size and position makes sense
