Fun with Forced Perspective and Windows Live Photo Gallery

12 Jul

Forced perspective is a technique that employs optical illusion to make an object appear farther away, closer, larger or smaller than it actually is. It manipulates human visual perception through the use of scaled objects and the correlation between them and the vantage point of the spectator or camera.As we are visiting Pizza regularly here on the Niew Amsterdam, I thought it might be fun to share some photos with you. All the photos below have been edited with Microsoft’s Windows Live Photo Gallery Software, which is a fee download to your XP, Vista, or Windows 7 computer. Take a look;


All it takes is a little pre-planning with your subject and a little imagination. Remember to post your results on your SkyDrive Account. If you don’t have one as of yet, go to and sign up.

    Frank, you go to Pizza? Love your workshops. How do you print a panoramic??? I would love to see some of mine in print, but can’t figure out how to print them.

    Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which
    blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had
    problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
