Here is a look at ten photos that use the forced perspective technique. This type of trick photography doesn’t use photo editing software but rather, with some creative positioning of subjects and the camera, it creates an optical illusion that makes objects appear to be more distant, closer, smaller, or larger than they really are.

This is a great example of forced perspective. The man’s hands are perfectly positioned to appear as though they are holding the flying saucer above his head. The smaller image on the left illustrates how large the flying saucer truly is. When creating these types of photos, make sure the shadows don’t give away your secret, as they have done here – note the man’s shadow on the bottom right of the image, as well as the distant shadow of the flying saucer.
