Optical Illusion | CMSMatHome


Good morning from #CMSMatHome!

Today, you may need to ask an adult for help, as we’ll use a camera, cellphone, or a tablet. You will also need a variety of smaller props, such as balls, cars, trucks, animal figurines, and the like.

Try to stage an optical illusion by holding a prop of choice close to the camera lens while another person stands a few feet (or further) away, pretending to interact with the prop. Align the prop with the live model and take a photo! Explore different images you can create and show us what you’ve got!
