Forced Perspective

24 Jan

While down at the Coast, What my brothers and I did most of the time, when we were not out there swimming, or having some sort of constructive fun, we were taking photos. Forced perspective photos. As a matter of fact, we did not only do it the three of us, but my parents were involved some of the times.

If you ask me, this is a very fun and fulfilling type of photography that you can try out in a group, or sometimes on your own( will show you examples in the next post). As I said it is so much fun. But just what exactly is forced perspective?

it is a technique that employs Optical Illuison to make an object appear farther away, closer, larger or smaller than it actually is. It is used primarily in photography, filmmaking and architecture. It manipulates human visual perception through the use of scaled objects and the correlation between them and the vantage point of the spectator or camera.

The first batch for me to roll out ( anticipate more this week)
