I've always been drawn to the power of digital images. From the first .bmp I ever hit Save as on to the .jpg's I upload to Instagram daily, I feel like there's an under-appreciated ability for pixels on a screen – or even more fundamentally, 1s and 0s – to immerse you into a visual reality that isn't your own.

As creators of said digital images, a big part of what helps us achieve this is depth. We live in a three dimensional world, after all, so visual details that represent or create a sense of depth translate into a more relatable final image. In lifestyle and editorial photography, where one of the key objectives is to transport the viewer to a context or environment that's depicted on their screen, depth is essential.

And so, if you are a seeker, creator, or simply an appreciator of depth, you might find this tutorial on adding depth to your watch photography interesting. Enjoy!
