Making Your Own Forced Perspective images. 

Think about the pictures you've seen and have a go at taking your own pictures. It's important to remember a few tips 

1. These shots work best on a sunny day. Depth of Field is important and relates to how much of the picture is sharp. With a foreground and background in focus it is possible for the visual trickery to work.  So try to do this when the sun is out 

2. Focus on the figure in your picture. 

3. If you are trying the sideways world picture make sure the wall the person is sitting against - or post the person is hanging from is straight.

3. You can't do this very well with just 2 people - so work in groups of 3 or 4.
