This video was originally filmed in November 2011 and posted on TED.com. It features photographer Erik Johansson. He creates realistic photos of impossible scenes — capturing ideas, not moments. In this witty how-to, the Photoshop wizard describes the principles he uses to make these fantastical scenarios come to life, while keeping them visually plausible.
The only thing that limits us, is our imagination. – Erik Johansson
When a photographer comes up with an idea, it is sometimes easier for one to create a space, than to actually find a place. Erik Johansson discusses how he composes his ‘impossible photography’. He touches on some three single rules to follow when creating a realistic image: same perspective, same lighting, and making it seamless.
