Amazing realistic scenes shot with model cars

Amazing realistic scenes shot with model cars

Forced perspective can be a highly useful tool for photographers and Michael Paul Smith takes the technique to exciting places using his vast collection of die-cast model cars. Forced perspective is an illusion-based photography trick in which you incorporate objects that are far away, and appear smaller, into a closer “life-sized” scene. 

In an in-depth interview with Fstoppers, Smith explains his creative process. He describes himself as being “math challenged,” which means that there aren’t any complicated mathematical theorems going into the framing of the shots; instead, he skillfully eyeballs the composition and hopes for the best. 

The images you’re seeing here were, if you can believe it, captured using a simple and inexpensive point-and-shoot camera. Smith’s work stands as proof that high technology isn’t always necessary to produce truly exceptional work.
