There is no denying that pictures speak louder than a thousand words. However, photography can be deceiving.

A modern-day photographer seems to have captured three vintage cars cruising around this calm neighborhood, right? But let’s see exactly how he managed to shoot such this retro scene without going back in time.

2. CLOSER THAN THEY APPEAR

As you can imagine, this photographer didn’t have 3 real vintage cars for this photo, so he used 3 toys and forced perspective. By placing his camera at the right angle, he tricked us into believing these cars were life-sized.

3. PRE-WED SHOOT

A pre-wedding photo shoot unraveled by the lake to capture these two love birds before their I-dos in a perfectly romantic moment. But did the photographer simply stood there and clicked his camera? Of course not…

4. POND INTENDED

No, this couple didn’t have the power to walk on water like Jesus did. They just hired a good photographer willing to step into a pond and kneel.

Mystery. Mist. A closet. This Narnia-like picture transports our mind to a whole different universe ready to be discovered. But this epic photo of a far away land featuring a closet was not conceived thanks to Adobe Effects magic wand. DIY trickery and wits was all this photographer needed to pull such an enchanting shot.

The Photographer, the wit, and the closet. With a nice setting, a table, some dry ice and the powers of forced perspective, this photographer made this toy closet look like a fascinating mysterious wardrobe in the middle of nowhere.

How does this model look so good under water? Did the photographer’s fingers go wrinkly after so many shots under water? So many questions!

8. OPEN MIND

The photographer behind this made the model lay down on the floor, with a plastic pool on top that would reflect water on his face as if he were under open waters. Fascinating what good lighting can do, too!

An adorable girl having fun under a giant leaf with sliding droplets was an inspiration to this photographer. Now let’s see how this gorgeous shot was conceived. 

10. LEAVE IT UP TO ME

There is a huge leaf and water, yes, but the setting is not as magical as the picture portrays. With a strainer and some water, this witty photographer adds his touch of adorable in the picture.
