    05 Shoot a forced perspective effect

    Forced perspective photography continues to be a popular genre, and you don’t need a lot of kit to produce fun pictures. Start by trying to make large things look small, and vice versa.

    Examples of this include the Leaning Tower of Pisa appearing to be propped up by a tourist, pinching the sun between forefinger and thumb, and kissing Big Ben.

    Use a wide-angle lens, as these make objects closer to the camera appear much larger in relation to background objects.

    Move forwards and backwards until the background object appears at the desired size, then ask your model to stand a few feet from the lens.

    Get started today…
    * Use a tripod for precise framing.
    * Shoot in Aperture Priority and use a small aperture to extend depth of field.
    * Use the depth of field preview button – or shoot with Live View – to find the sweet spot where foreground and background elements appear in focus.
