What Makes Trick Photography Different To Ordinary Photography?

On the other hand, trick photography is aimed at presenting ordinary things in extraordinary ways in a photo by using tricks and techniques to create certain effects, distortions or optical illusions.

What Do You Need To Do This Trick

You do not need a studio with expensive and high-tech photographing equipment to professionally produce trick photography. A number of techniques can be done with a camera only. There are certain tricks that are performed simply through adjusting the camera's settings, or positioning the camera and the object in a certain way to create the required effect or illusion.

Even though it's possible to produce a variety of amazing photography tricks by just using your camera only, you might also want to know how to create the trick by utilizing photo-editing software such as Photoshop and a PC to further enhance your photos or perform even more tricks.

Some Examples Of Trick Photography

Getting creative gives you the opportunity to hone your photography skills and have fun at the same time producing photos. Some of the techniques are very simple such as requiring you to adjust your camera in a specific way only to get the right shot that'll create a trick.

This is a very simple technique to create. You only need your camera for this one, and you don't even have to use special camera setting.

With forced perspective you have to snap photos that give the illusion that objects are much bigger, smaller, nearer or further away than other objects in the photo. Example, you can make your hand look way bigger than your house or car. If you don't know how to do trick photography and want to start with one instantly, then forced perspective is a good choice.
