Erik Johansson’s “Impossible Photography”

Erik Johansson is a professional photographer and retoucher from Sweden based in Berlin, Germany. Erik sees the world a little differently than the rest of us and uses multiple images to portray his “impossible photography” solutions.

A few key points that Erik explains in his video to create an impossible, but realistic image are:

  • Use the same perspective
  • Use the same lighting in all your images
  • Make it impossible to detect where image starts and end
  • Add depth of field and some noise to add another dimension of realism.
