Photo Challenge & Contest: Fun with Forced Perspective!
Due: Monday 11/23/20
What is forced perspective? How is it achieved?
Forced perspective is a technique which employs optical illusion to make an object appear farther away, closer, larger or smaller than it actually is. 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.
It requires strategic placement and great depth of field.
