When people talk about little kids, this next illusion is probably not what comes to mind. But, it’s definitely a pretty cool little person illusion. Take a look!
This photo seems to capture two kids—one normal size one and one that’s either really huge or really tiny. For the sake of keeping things simple, let’s just say that the one is very, very small.
This little person illusion, though, is just a clever photography trick. It’s a perfect example of forced perspective in photography. Both children are normal size, of course. One is just standing on a log in the background, making him appear much smaller than the child in the foreground. The positions of their heads and faces also add to the illusion of vastly different sizes.
