Photos Of Flying People Have Not Been Altered. So Amazing.

Posted on Other Stuff 111

Your first reaction when you see these photos from Chinese photographer Li Wei, will be to think they’ve been Photoshopped or altered in some way. Surprisingly, that’s not the case. What’s happening in each shot, actually happened in real life.Wei uses a series of visual tricks involving mirrors and wires to make the viewer believe that the people in his photos are actually flying through the air. It’s pretty darned convincing. Just look at these pictures!

He takes the whole “smoke and mirrors” thing quite literally.
