You don’t always have to use Photoshop to create optical illusions in your photographs. With a technique called forced perspective you can create illusions that make an object appear farther away, closer, larger or smaller than it actually is. It just takes a little creativity with the placement of the subjects in the shot and the camera angle. To give you some inspiration, here are 20 Creative Examples of Forced Perspective Photography.

    Really creative list of forced perspective photography, I really like the ones where it looks like they’re holding the light orbs in tweezers and the spanner. I also really love the one of the guy in the clover field holding the cloud! I remember doing similar things to some of these when I was on holiday a couple of years ago. Thanks for posting.

    I’ve seen a lot of forced perspective photography, but always open to new ones. It’s kind of a trend now in photography.

    Sorry to play devil’s advocate, but many of these look photoshopped. You can tell from the shadows.
