I had a crazy hour today and thought I’d play around with Forced Perspective shooting.
Here’s my “Giant Bucket Fill”, continue reading to see the idea and how I did it.
Of course, there isn’t a giant bucket or a smaller ladder and person (which is me by the way).
If you look at these photos, all becomes clear and it’s just a trick of Forced Perspectives. This is a technique to make things look bigger or smaller by using the trick of perspectives with a camera. The step ladder is simply placed a far distance away from the table that the bucket is on. I tried to do this shot with one exposure and a large aperture but I couldn’t get the Depth of Field I wanted and therefore had to take 2 exposures. The first shot is focused on the bucket then another shot is focused on the ladders these have been merged together in Photoshop.
