Star magician Dynamo Add a Bit of Magic to Selfies with Samsung S7 for the Very First Time
Star magician Dynamo released a series of seven incredible new illusions for a new campaign in which he promises to help people add a bit of magic to their selfies, by revealing the secrets behind each picture for the very first time. From floating above the London skyline using an umbrella to shrinking yourself to the size of a pint glass to jumping crowds of people on a pedal bike – the series of clever illusions plays with perspective and perception to create a stunning series of shots which the magician insists anyone can achieve.
The Samsung S7 Everyday Illusions project uses a mixture of “forced perspective” techniques, combined with everyday items and a handful of simple, easily-made props to create the series of mind-boggling shots.
The pictures were designed by the illusionist to showcase the astonishing camera capabilities of the new Samsung Galaxy S7 which launches on Friday this week. Each of the images were designed by Dynamo on – and shot using – the phone, and the accompanying video provides a step-by-step guide to achieving similar effects at home.
