Special effects experts have known for decades how to shoot a few frames of film to make someone look gigantic or small, or make something (or someone) look like it’s on fire. Forced perspective is a very cool optical trick.
In this age where everyone has a camera in their pocket, sometimes these shots are just captured randomly. Most of the time, they’re shared online (usually on Imgur or Reddit). Below are twenty really cool and/or funny pics, shot from just the right angle to make you do a double take.
