WOW, Bynx you just took this model photography thing to a whole new level. Shrinking your son to fit in the car, that's pure genius

Thanks Mugmar. Im finding this whole Forced Perspective shooting very interesting. There are 3 elements, the car, the background and the camera. The camera and its position determine both the size of the background and the car which are shot as one. By having my son sit in a chair in the same spot that the car was theoretically sitting the background behind him is the same as the car so there is no cropping behind him or the car. To make him fit in I just had to crop the parts of the car that he was covering which was the driver door and parts of the passenger door.

Thanks for the explanation. So your son, the car and the background were all taken in the same shot?

Another question, Does the focal length of the lens help/hinder the process? IE the compression that a longer lens would have over a wider lens?

The car and the background is one shot. My son and the background was another shot. The backgrounds lined up so there was no close cropping. As for the focal length of the lens....well Ive shot with a 28-300 zoom lens and a 10-20 zoom lens and its easier to use the 10-20 in that it has a longer depth of field. If the background is close to the camera then the car has to be proportionately large as well which means it has to be closer to the camera. I love pushing things to extremes. In this case its the depth of field. So the 10-20 is better for this.
