“Forced Perspective” is a photography technique that makes far-away objects seem closer than they are by contrasting them with nearby objects. With a little bit of imagination and planning, anyone can create photographic illusions using forced perspective, but mastering the technique requires lots of practice, experimentation, and creativity.
Hugo Suíssas is a photographer based in Portugal who has spent years perfecting the craft. His interest in forced perspective photography grew out of his childhood love of magic and illusion, and he uses interesting props, meticulously staged sets, and a cheeky sense of humor to make his work stand out. Below are a few of his brilliant creations, and you can find more of his work by following his delightful Instagram account.
If Hugo’s awesome photographs inspire you to try making your own forced perspective photos, remember that it’s easier with a partner (so you don’t have to keep walking back and forth to set up the shot) and it’s best to keep things simple at first! You can also use the helpful tips in this guide to get started!
Eyes are the windows of the soul, and these windows shoot blood straight at your face.
