Photoshop Genius Erik Johansson Shows How His Mind-Bending Pics Are Born

Photoshop master Erik Johannsson creates optical illusions and photo manipulations so mind-bending and life-like that his digital art sometimes seems like magic. In these awesome behind-the-scenes videos, however, we get to see how he actually makes some of his creative photos

Aside from his extensive use of Photoshop, his videos show how the real and fantasy worlds blend seamlessly in his stunning pictures. For most of his surreal photos, he had to photograph different elements of the photos in real life before blending and photo editing them. Simple solutions, like a bottle or a roll of paper, transform into amazing photos right before your eyes.

To see more of his amazing optical illusions and surreal images, check out the website dedicated to his creative photography!

I think that this should silence or muffle the naysayers of " Oh, it's been PhotoShopped, a million people can do that....." That's the comment I heard once at an art exhibition of such digital artistry much like this. But then, I suppose, DaVinci had such scoffers and naysayers.
