10 Photos Reveal The Truth Behind Photography

Sometimes a photo looks too good to be real. And sometimes it’s because there’s actually a lot more happening behind the scenes than it shows in the final image. We’re not talking about photo editing here, we’re talking about the physical work that goes behind the frame into creating some of the most amazing shots.

The guys at Bored Panda have compiled a list of 10 creative examples of how perspective, props, and outside-the-box thinking can turn ordinary shots into extraordinary ones. And hopefully for those of you who take an occasional photo or two, this will serve as a source for some fresh ideas the next time you find yourself behind the lens.
