Playing With The Sun And The Moon In Forced Perspective Photography

According to Wikipedia, 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 is used primarily in photography, filmmaking and architecture. 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.

Forced perspective effect is mostly found in photos with the Moon or with the Tower of Pisa. Even though some  are a cliche, I’m  always amused by them. My favorites are the ones with the Moon so that’s why in this article you will see some  interesting forced perspective photos that I found with our little neighbor from the sky.
