Perspective Trickery

A fun way of getting people to interact with the scene. Will makes people look twice at your photos.


  • Another person.
  • Something in the background for them to interact with


  • If available, select aperture-priority mode at set it to 8 if you have a compact camera and 16 if you have a dSLR. This will help get both the person and the background into focus


  • Work out what funny business you want the other person to get up to
  • Now direct the other person into place. Get them to strike a particular post and then stay completely still.
  • Make small small adjustments to your camera position in order to get the person and background to align.
