Development of 3D scenes from 2D pictures is the centrality venture for an effective prologue to 3D multimedia service. Depth estimation is the basic phenomena in the construction of 3D from multiple images. Depth determination from single view 2D images is most probably the challenging and more difficult process. This paper presents a new depth estimation approach based on human height as a reference. The proposed approach consists of two phases. In the primary stage, expansive picture set has been caught (indoor situations which incorporate human in remaining with clear foundation) and human item is removed from the caught picture. At that point, mathematical model has been built from the examination. In the second stage, depth value is assessed by utilizing mathematical model. These evaluated depth data is utilized for further process, for example, 3D view era.
