Layers

It's time now to go out and practice with this idea of layers. I want you to think about two things. First, simply the process of compressing multiple layers into a single geometric plane and seeing how the interrelationship of those different layers can create new shapes independent of any of the individual layers. But mostly what this exercise is about is to get you to stop seeing just a flat plane in front of you. As we move through the world, very often it's very easy to see a particular thing and kind of only pay attention to things at that distance and see the background just as background.

I would like you to really practice seeing that, yeah, you may notice a subject at one distance, but there's other stuff in your frame also at other distances and through depth of field control and clever composition, you can work with those different layers to create a single unified composition.
