10 Impossible Images That Look Possible & How You Can Do It Too!

Many years prior to me owning my first digital, SLR I had been using Adobe Photoshop for several years. Just for fun really. I’d manipulate photographs to give them an abstract look or make funny pictures of my friends. Sometimes I would just type into Google; Photoshop Tutorial, Photoshop for beginners, Photoshop tricks, Top cool things to do on Photoshop or Photoshop ideas.

My favourite Photoshop artist has to be Erik Johansson. His work really bends the mind and creates illusions so real yet so impossible. That’s the magic behind his work, making the impossible possible. Erik has featured on TED, a website dedicated to ideas, motivation and education. I’ll talk more about TED in another blog but to find out more, go check out their website, its awesome. Erik Johansson creates ideas with his photography and brings them to life in Photoshop. Then they strangely become plausible as he explains in his TED talk by clicking here.

For more inspirational, creative and just genuinely interesting photography check out Hongkiat. Where they have a list of the best creative and artistic photoshoppers and photographers.

I know there are many people out there who have purchased Adobe Photoshop and struggled to find the motivation to get started. If the above information is not enough to inspire you and you really want to learn more about the software. You can build your confidence and improve your ability by subscribing to magazines such as Photoshop Creative or check out websites such as Mashable that has 12 beginner Photoshop tutorials that break down the basics and will get you up and running in no time. I’d highly recommend a cup of coffee and setting aside a couple of hours to yourself to get started as you’ll retain the information better and become a Photoshop whiz quicker!

Once you’ve mastered the basics of the program you’ll find that the things you’ve learnt can be used to create holiday cards, fix up photographs for yourself and your friends, create art and just have fun.
