20 Ordinary Photos That Ended Up Looking Like a Renaissance Artwork

2 years ago

With the advent of smartphones and digital cameras, it’s quite easy to take snapshots of everyday scenes and objects around us. But there are times when the composition, lighting, and natural elements all come together for the photo. And what should’ve been an ordinary picture, accidentally turns into a “classical” masterpiece.

Now I’ve Seen Everything put together an album of random images worthy of being framed and displayed in a museum, because of their resemblance to Renaissance artwork.

1. “This photo my dad nonchalantly posted in the family chat.”

2. “Fog and smoke made it look like an oil painting.”

3. “Tell Cersei... I want her to know it was me.”

4. “I can see myself using this photo as reference for a painting.”

5. “Lady and her cat.”

6. “A blacksmith shop at Allaire State Park in NJ.”

11. “My boyfriend painting Warhammer 40k miniatures.”

12. “A buddy was taking photos in my shop to expand his portfolio, and his lights didn’t trigger, so we got this dramatic shot. It’s my favorite so far.”
