Trick Photography

Published by at 6:47 am under Recommended Products

I came across an awesome book on trick photography, written by Evan Sharboneau. It has 3 modules.

Module 1: Long Exposure Effects and Light Painting

In Evan’s first module he teaches us how to light-paint like a pro! I first figured out one technique for this back in the 1970’s and won first place at a county fair. Evan goes into a lot more depth and detail than I ever figured out on my own.

This module covers everything you need to know on capturing those beautiful illuminated long exposure photos you have been dreaming about. With over 60 pages reviewing different light sources describing what they do and how to use them, you won’t ever find yourself in the dark without a bright idea! Taking long exposures of star trails and lightning is also covered. And if that isn’t enough, you’ll also enjoy the entire section on taking long exposures during the day. Oh, and if you don’t have any Adobe┬« Photoshop┬« software at this point, don’t worry. Most of the tricks in this module can be done right in-camera, with no Photoshop required. All you need is a DSLR camera.

Module 2: Trick Photography and Special Effects

This module goes over the mind-blowing special effects and optical illusion techniques that add drama and surreal creativity to your images. Adobe Photoshop software is recommended for this module but isn’t 100% essential for all the tricks. This module will show you how to blow people away with Optical Illusions, HDR Photography, Infrared Photography, 360 Planetoids and Tunnels, The Droste Effect, Spiral Planets, Time-Displacement Photography, Birefringence, The Orton Effect, The Harris Shutter Effect, and Multiple Exposures.

Module 3: Photoshop Projects

This module is filled with Photoshop-oriented projects. It is easy to follow and the tools are simple to use. You’ll learn how to create shocking images using Multiplicity Photography, Levitation Photography, Floating Fruit, The Invisible Man Technique, Fake Tilt-Shift Photography, and Flesh Manipulations. There are also several “image-and-description” pages included. These are pages where Evan shows you an image, and then tells you exactly how he made it.

If you don’t have Photoshop, don’t feel left out. Evan tell you where you can get it for cheap at the beginning of the e-book and also give you a free alternative.

p.s. here is where I have to tell you that I will get a commission if you buy the book I just recommended, and that the commissions help fund the costs of this website; oh, and I should also tell you that I do NOT get paid to recommend the book, only if you buy it
