Trick Photography & Special Effects 2nd Edition – Is It For Real?

 

Most people assume that in order to take amazing pictures, you need to take a bunch of courses and spend a lot of money. When I first saw the images in Trick Photography & Special Effects I was convinced that they were all heavily photoshopped or that the guy who was selling it must have been a professional photographer for a long time.

It was a shock to me to find out that Evan Sharbonneau, who wrote the ebook, is a self taught photography enthusiast who figured out how to take breathtaking photos all on his own.

So What Is Trick Photography & Special Effects Anyway?

Well, first of all it’s a digital download. That’s a fancy way of saying that it’s not a book that gets sent in the mail. This means that if you want to have a physical book to look at you will need to print it out yourself and put it in a binder.

The great thing about it being a pdf document is that you get access to it as soon as you buy it. There’s no waiting around for something to show up in the mail.  Literally, one click to buy, one click to get the entire ebook.

Most of the book is focused on how to make trick photos without the use of photoshop. For instance, he talks about how to use steel wool to make some super cool special effect kind of images.

There are all kinds of tricks with everyday kind of things, so basically you don’t need to go out and buy hundreds of dollars of photography gear in order to pull this stuff off.

What Are Real People Saying about the Trick Photography & Special Effects 2nd Edition?

It’s a sad fact that the internet is full of all kinds of people who sell things that are long on promises and short on actually doing what they say they will. I can assure you, Evan’s program is nothing like that. Here’s what other people are saying about it…

“This is possibly the best photography book I have ever bought, and I have wasted money on a few. Why?  Because it shows you the coolest stuff you can do with a camera.”

– Daniel N. (Testimony from Evan’s website)

“It’s laid out in a way where it eases you into trick photography without bombarding you with technical and complicated terms and processes.”

– Refugee P (Testimony from Evan’s website)

I’d imagine if you’re looking for trick photography pictures you want to see some actual pictures, so here’s a collection of some of my favourites from that Trick Photography and Special Effects book I bought about a month ago.

For those of you who are following me, I still fully intend to make my own trick photos and share them with you on this blog so that you have an idea of what a regular Joe can do with this book and a camera.

But of course life isn’t always full of tons of free time, especially around Christmas, so my plans have been delayed a bit.

Trick Photography Photo Example

So I was reading through the morning newspaper the other day, not thinking about trick photography techniques at all, when I came across something really interesting. I have to admit I don’t know much about the history of trick photos, or how long photos have been manipulated to create images that look surreal and make people take a second look.

But there they were, right beside my morning coffee. So I figured I should make a post and share them with the rest of the world who don’t read Danish newspapers.

The photo above was sold by International News Photos in 1930.  Of course a zeppelin never came that close to the Empire State Building in New York, but maybe some poor readers were convinced that it actually happened.  I’m not sure about the level of journalistic integrity back in those days, but I’m sure a cover like that would have sold a lot of newspapers.

First Impressions

Just wanted to say that I bought the book and after having looked through it, it’s pretty packed with information.  Definitely gonna take me some time to work my way through it.  Lots of example photos, and step by step instructions about how to take different kinds of trick photos.

There are also some videos which I haven’t looked at at all yet, so no comment on them.  But buying it worked fine.  I used paypal and it went smoothly.

So there you go.  The journey begins.  I’ll have to decide what my first project will be.
