25 Incredible Photos Made Without Photoshop

Aren’t you tired of all those obsessed with photo editing? A girl sends you her picture and when you meet her in person you get catfished as the filters are gone off from her face. Nowadays, you can’t even believe your friend who’s showing you his newest photos from his trip to Egypt, because all those cool photos might be photoshopped too. It’s a scary world we’re living in — full of lies, sins, and photo manipulations.

But things can be different. There are brave people who said NO to Photoshop and took these creative photos the old-fashioned way. Using a photography technique known as forced perspective, these people have superimposed themselves into their environment to make these incredible pictures. All they needed was a camera and some perfect timing. You might recognize it from those funny Leaning Tower Of Pisa tourist photos where people appear to be holding the tower up with their bare hands. This optical illusion has also been used in the Lord of The Rings movies to make the dwarf and hobbit characters appear shorter compared to the others.

Enjoy this little collection of interesting photos and send me more stunning pictures you have. These perfectly timed photos prove that you don’t need to rely on Photoshop to be creative! There are plenty of forced perspective photography ideas here to help you shoot your own ones too!
