Forced Perspective

Creating a photograph like to one on the right doesn’t require Photoshop. All you need are two willing participants, a bright environment, and a small aperture. The image is from Jill Harness’ mental_floss website. The real secret is the small aperture. Try f/16 as a starting point. The reason why you need a small aperture is because you want both of your participants to be in sharp focus. A small aperture has a larger depth of field and enhances the illusion.

Do a Google serch for “forced perspective” and you can find many examples.
