Spanish Photographer Shares The Incredible Tricks He Uses to Take Breathtaking Photos

Taking amazing photographs isn’t difficult…if you know what you’re doing, that is! Knowing how to manipulate angles and distances would certainly help, but using props can make all the difference in the world. Just ask Barcelona-based photographer Jordi Puig. He has become a master at using a wide array of tools to get the perfect shot, and he’s sharing it with his followers on Instagram.  

A Matter of Perspective

Jordi Puig is a total pro at photography. Just take a look at his Instagram account and get ready to get wowed! Jordi can change the perspective of a photo just by playing with the framing, or the angle of the shot by using some of the simplest items most of us probably have in our kitchen right now. This is perfect for those of you who aren’t savvy with Photoshop.  

Props Make Everything Magical

This sunset looks even more beautiful now that Jordi cut both ends of a water bottle and placed it on his camera lens. You certainly can’t complain about tunnel vision when you capture a breathtaking orangey sunset like this one. It looks so good you want to hang it on a wall!  

It’s More Than Just a Ball

All people see is a man in a hoodie crouching down with a ball in his hand as Jordi tries to take a photo while standing in a puddle of rainwater. But wait until you see how otherworldly the photo turned out. Jordi is such a master that he blends fantasy and reality oh so perfectly, we had to do a double-take. Keep scrolling!  

The End Results

You don’t need to be a professional photographer. All you need to know is that angles make all the difference in the world. In this photo, the hooded man looks more like a grim reaper using “the force” to make that wet tennis ball float. But admittedly, Jordi does use Instagram filters to enhance the eerie mood of the photo.  

Letters or Pasta?

They might just look like ordinary letters, but to Jordi, these pasta letters are props that will help him create a spectacular effect that will leave his followers utterly speechless. The various simple hacks he implements will undoubtedly inspire any amateur photographer to get creative and try new things.  

Loose Letters Are Fun

Once those letters are thrown over the book, they really tell an imaginative story. And at the right angle and the right time, the snapped photo gives the illusion that the letters are literally flying out of the book the guy is holding. Of course, a little tunnel vision adds a nice touch too.  

Embracing the Creative Spark

Jordi knows how to think outside the box. Even something as simple as having a guy in a hoodie holding a burning newspaper can get turned into a spooky shot. Take this scene for example. Here’s an ethereal looking photograph in progress that would give most people chills.  

You Won’t Believe Your Eyes

You can never really tell the difference between the truth and the lie in the world of Jordi Puig. Then again, why would you want to? These manipulated angles and digital enhancements will leave you flabbergasted while others will ensure that you never get a wink of sleep again.
