DYNAMO'S 'S7 EVERYDAY ILLUSIONS'

 

Celebrity magician Dynamo has unveiled a series of new photographic illusions to celebrate this week’s launch of the new Samsung Galaxy S7, in London.

The illusions which range from floating above the London skyline using an umbrella to shrinking to the size of a pint glass and skating on a London double-decker bus were all captured using the new phone.

The incredible images use a mixture of forced perspective techniques combined with everyday items and a handful of simple props to create the illusions, which Dynamo insists anyone can achieve.

The Everyday Illusions project was specially created by the star illusionist to showcase the camera capabilities of the S7 including a new super-fast shutter speed and a Dual Pixels autofocus system.

Dynamo, who has captivated millions with his incredible feats on TV series Magician Impossible and is currently on a sell-out arena tour of the UK, said:

"Ever since I was a child, I have been interested in looking at the world in different ways. I have always been fascinated by the fact that a simple twist on perspective can completely affect our perception of an image. I wanted to play with this concept for the Everyday Illusions pictures.

"They say magicians should never give away their secrets - but for one time only, I wanted to create a series of illusions that anyone can create and show you exactly how to do it.

Conor Pierce, Vice President of IT & Mobile, Samsung UK & Ireland, commented;

"We challenged Dynamo to create some photographic magic which would show off the Samsung Galaxy S7's advanced camera functionality and we have been delighted with the results. The pictures and accompanying behind the scenes video for the Everyday Illusions project were all shot using our new S7 phone and clearly showcases the incredible new features including our the improved low light camera, super-fast shutter speed and even quicker auto focus - essential for capturing incredible images like these ones.

We want to empower consumers with technology to help them get more out of life and will continue to push the frontier of what’s possible, I believe Dynamo has taken that ethos and run with it for this amazing launch project”.
