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.
Examples of Trick Photography Pictures
Impressive or what? These are some of my favourites, so if you like these you can check out a bunch more trick photography pictures over at my Pinterest account. And I have to admit it makes me feel kinda good when people follow my boards so please don’t be shy.
Anyway, this is a fairly small sample but it does contain some pictures using some of my favourite trick photography techniques, such as light painting and levitation.
But I like to look at a small sample of photographs. To me, looking at too many pictures at once makes them all kind of blend in to each other. It’s sort of like the difference between listening to music as the background to something else you’re doing, and just sitting down and listening to a song or an album.
And who does that anymore anyway? We are so used to seeing images and videos these days that it takes a lot to make us look twice.
And I guess that’s what I think is so magical about a good trick photo. That it makes you stop for a second and think about exactly how the photo might have been taken.
Or else just marvel about what an amazing photograph it is. Writing posts like this makes me wonder why I haven’t got off my butt yet and make more of my own trick photography pictures, but that is on my list of New Year’s resolutions, so there’s hope for me yet.
That’s all for now.. Happy shooting.
p.s. And in case you happen to be lucky enough to live in New York, you should know that there is a trick photography exhibit at the Met right now. There’s one for images that have been photoshopped, and one for the time before that Adobe product had such an impact on the images that we see.
