TEDTALK – REALISTIC PHOTOS OF IMPOSSIBLE SCENES

Today we’re inspired by this TEDtalk titled ‘Impossible Photography’. Delivered by Erik Johansson at a TED conference last year, the presentation is a must-watch for photography enthusiasts. Pushing the edge in photo realism, in just over 6mins, Erik explains his passion for what can only be described as photoshop wizardry and divulges the 3 basic rules of creating realistic photos of impossible scenes:

1. Photographs must be of the same perspective.

2. Photographs must have the same type of light setting.

3. Seamless is the key – it must be impossible to see where the the different photos that make the final shot begin and end.

Very impressive.
