Challenge 21: Forced Perspective

/, Inspiration/Challenge 21: Forced Perspective

Welcome to week 21 of the 2024 SlickPic 52-week Photo Challenge! Thanks for being on the journey, and being committed to improving your skills.

This week’s Challenge is: Forced Perspective

Feeling extra creative and experimental this week? How about taking on this week’s forced perspective photography challenge? With this technique, you can make clever use of optical illusion to make your subjects look smaller, bigger, closer, or further away. If you’ve ever seen travel photos where tourists are pushing at the Leaning Tower of Pisa, holding the tip of the Eiffel Tower, or cupping the sun as it’s setting, those are just some popular examples of forced perspective photos!

To create effective or convincing forced perspective photos, there are some key elements to keep in mind. These include keeping the scene and the composition simple so as not to distract from the illusion. Also, the illusion itself is heavily dependent on the placement of your subject/s.

Need some ideas and inspiration for this week’s challenge? Check out these essential guides on forced perspective photography from MIOPS, Adobe, and Adorama.

About the Author:

SlickPic was created by a group of like-minded photographers and photography-enthusiasts who wanted a service that wouldn't force them to conform to a certain style or niche, but one that would allow them the freedom to use their photos to tell whatever stories they want. They wanted a service that was capable of storing, showcasing, sharing, and displaying photos in all the different ways people use photos: some are meant just for family, some are taken for friends, and some are made for the world to see.
