This week we are going to introduce another photography technique that is fun and easy to use: Forced Perspective. Once you’ve finished reading this blog, you will not be able to wait to go outside and get to try out this technique.
Forced Perspective is a technique used primarily in photography, filming movies and architecture. It’s about creating optical illusions by making an object appear larger, smaller, farther or closer than it really is.
Yes, basically it is to fool our eyes into creating an illusion for something that seems logically impossible, but thanks to creativity and imagination, we can make it look real.Have you ever tried to catch the clouds in your hand ? Try to hold the Tower of Pisa to keep it from falling? This technique is called Forced Perspective. Have you tried it?
How is it done?
Point of view
Care needs to be taken with the focus and with the lighting. If the objects in the photo have different lighting or are blurred, it will make the effect look fake. Try focusing in on both the objects to create the perfect perspective. This will definitely fool everyone! If you want to blur the image to enhance this effect, we recommend trying out tilt-shift to create a miniature effect in the background. You can use Tilt-Shift at Fotor.com just as we did in the photo below.
Try different things out, experiment and work with the scenery. Take lots of photos and try again to really learn how to do it. Composing photos with hilarious elements is always interesting.
Thanks for checking us out!
