19 examples of amazing optical illusion photography
Taking great illusion photographs requires a lot of preparation and co-ordination. However, it is definitely worth it when the end result is a photo that leaves everyone captivated. Using perspective in your photography can create a novel and compelling shot. Our eyes look for the most logical perspective of the image which results, but after a closer look we understand what’s truly in the image. Using imaginative composition, lighting effects or photo-editing software, illusion photography allows your photographs to play tricks on the viewer’s visual senses.
We’ve compiled a selection of great photography illusions that truly wowed us, and we hope it will do the same for you too.
