Forced Perspective Photography

  • Nov 17, 2012 · 2:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

TIME TO PUT YOUR CREATIVE HATS ON!!

Forced perspective is a technique that 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. You can see examples here (scroll down through the advert section):

As a suggestion, you might want to bring your own props.

We'll meet outside of the MTR Exit K.

Also, if you are new to the group, please take some time to complete the Q&A on your profiles!

    The leader of the group was nice, but the group itself was not accommodating for a more beginner level. Every time photos were being taken and there was a queue of three people and I was the last one, the people posing would get up out of their pose before I got a chance to photograph and I gave up on having to every time ask for them to wait for me to have a go. I will maybe another time give the group a try, but that was definitely frustrating.

    Another challenging typical Sam meetup. Thanks for organiding, Sam. Things were never as easy as they appeared in the beginning. Would have to practise more to learn the techniques.

    Hi Sam, are we going to partner up like we did in Brassai? It may help if one can be model while the other shoots and vice-versa. Just a thought :-)

    The weather forecast for tomorrow is "cloudy with occasional rain". The meetup will go ahead. Please make sure you change your RSVP to "no" asap if you decide you don't want to get your hair wet, so that we aren't left waiting for you. Thank you.
