I'm just now learning about photography so I still know very little. I came across this photograph, which looks very abnormal to me, and would appreciate it if someone could tell me about the techniques used to achieve that effect.
The thighs look disproportionately long (and thin), giving the impression they've been lengthened. I'd like to know how it was done. Here's a more normal photograph of the same legs for comparison.
It is a matter of using wide angle objective and corresponding viewing angle (tilted).
For the second photo: short upper dress and lines crossing legs (black dress, briefs' legs) are important as well
