So I guess this will have to do.
So many of the Flickr images tagged with forced perspective are so very unconvincing that it makes me want to make better images. Most common problem: insufficient depth of field, leaving things in unmatched focus. Another dead giveaway: uneven lighting.
I suspect the only cameras I have available have inadequate control over aperture to create convincing illusions.
Some of these forced perspective photos of cars are good, though very few of them make any attempt to sustain the illusion.
In a bid to get better google cred after the weekend of the 403, here are some of my favorite web pages featuring our namesake technique:
- a homemade Doctor Who with dolls shot in a park. very lovely (the section on forced perspective is pretty far down the page)
- A titanic hand
- G.I. Joe vs Aliens
There’s a lot of stuff out there that isn’t FP, isn’t convincing, or is talking about an episode of an SF tv show I won’t name here because I have nothing useful to offer anybody looking for information about it, even though it does star a guy who shows up on Xena from time to time.
