John Wilhelm is a married photographer from Switzerland with four wonderful children. Since photography has always been a big part of his life, he decided to combine his love of the art with family to create a series of surreal photo manipulations. “The importance of photography changed into joy when I was holding my first digital cam in my hands. The fire was sparked off and a long journey begun, a journey through lots of camera systems, techniques, experiences and finally software products. Feburary 2011, I decided to take a step across the border of plain photography. I entered the world of Photoshop and 3D-tools,” said Wilhelm. Continue reading for more pictures.

Let’s face it, getting the perfect shot for a magazine or product isn’t the easiest of tasks, even for professional photographers. This is where the graphic designers come in to touch things up, but sometimes, things don’t go as planned. For example, the reflection in this toy’s mirror should not be smiling directly back at the camera, but that’s exactly what made it to print. Continue reading for more bizarre Photoshop disasters.

Sure, you could spend hours trying to get the perfect shot, but sometimes your imagination likes to run wild. Photographer Monica Carvalho specializes in creating surreal photo manipulations by combining several photos into one, like the duck swimming in a lake of trees above. “In my inspiration process, I try to find similarities between photos in terms of color, texture and shape. For example, two mountain peaks I shot in Greece reminded me of an upper lip; a path in Oxford had the same color as my skin; a pouch zip evoked eyelashes. Other times I also like playing with sizes – my miniature friends ‘buried’ in my hand; the Empire State Building turned into a giant candle,” said Carvalho.

Pam Dave Zaring paid a professional photographer $250 to capture and retouch family photos, but what she got back? These terrible images, which were posted to Facebook, and then promptly went viral. “Ok. This is NOT a joke.

Photographer Conor Nickerson from Montreal, Canada reveals his new series, one in which he digitally inserts himself into childhood photos taken from 1997-2005, thus traveling back in time. “While looking through some old family photos, I wondered what it would it look like if tried to photoshop myself today into them. I gathered all the old hats and t-shirts that I could find and did my best to put myself into childhood moments which, aside from these photos, remain only a distant memory. It involved a lot of blurring, sharpening, and noise to try to get it to look like an older photo,” said Nickerson. Continue reading for more.

Chile-based digital artist Fernanda Suarez spent months creating modern day portraits of the most popular Disney princesses, starting with Snow White back in July. “They probably post selfies with their ‘princes’ on Instagram and all agree that NAKED2 is the best eyeshadow palette. Oh yeah, they probably also campaign non-stop on social media for the equal rights of dwarfs, marine wildlife, and big cat conservation,” said Bored Panda. Continue reading for more.
