Defy the laws of everything

As a photographer, have you ever wished you could bend the laws of physics to your will to get this perfect, indeed this impossible shot? Well, there is a way. All the tools are there to achieve the impossible, and the best thing is: they are free.A while ago, a little after I first began uploading photos on DT, I ran into the work of amazing digital artists who used state-of-the-art software to achieve photorealistic computer renderings.
