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 examples are popping up more and more places. For instance, I was at the Copenhagen photomessen the other day. There were a bunch of photographs on display from various photographers around the world, although mostly from Scandinavia. I didn’t get the name of this artist, but there were two photos that really jumped out at me. I’m pretty sure this is a good example of trick photography with photoshop but even so they’re super cool.

So here they are.. Impressive or what?

I’m not sure if this is a very good example of trick photography. I took this in the forest on a recent outing with my wife. We are quite in to digital photography and are always up for more photo tips.
It took a lot of jumping to get this one right. I’m still not convinced that it looks exactly like I wanted, but it’s pretty close. What I was aiming for was the illusion that i’m standing in mid air, looking back at someone walking down the path toward me, and getting ready to run away from that person. It’s up to you to judge how well I accomplished that goal.
I’m quite impressed by really good levitation photos, which I consider some of the more impressive trick photography examples, although I wouldn’t consider this to be one of them. The thing is that you need to make it look like you’re floating or hanging in mid air. This is done through body positioning and the expression on your face. Mess up on either of these two and the picture just won’t look very good.
To me it seems like the best strategy is to get your body into a position where it doesn’t reasonably seem like there is any other way for you to get back down to the ground, except for by falling. And the other important thing is to catch yourself while you’re jumping up. If it looks like you’re falling and on your way back down (i.e. your hair is flying up or your clothes are lifted too high) then our minds will immediately realize that the person has jumped, and that doesn’t make for any kind of trick photo.
I’ve looked at a lot of photography websites and there doesn’t seem to be a whole bunch dedicated to trick photography, or with a lot of trick photography examples. Please leave a comment and let me know where I might be able to find more and go here to find out more about trick photography and special effects.
I found this on Facebook the other day and just wanted to share it with you all. Talk about some cool trick photography examples. Just goes to show that a lot of times trick photography comes from the imagination.
Just look at how one location was used to make so many different cool pictures.
Anyway, it was very inspiring and I just wanted to let you all see it too. Click on the photo to see it on Facebook.
