The In-Camera Special Effects Techniques
The simple techniques that are presented in this book can provide you with an entirely new perspective on how to shoot simple scenes. You can use many of these techniques to create entirely new types of photographs for your portfolio. What follows are examples of photographic tricks that can be done in camera and without any assistance from editing software such as Photoshop.
Forced perspective shots for example, where two objects of vastly different size can appear to be next to each other is somewhat difficult to realistically achieve unless you know a few tricks. For example;
• Set the aperture to the lowest possible setting as the amount of light entering the camera will positively affect the depth of field, meaning that you'll achieve a more realistic effect.
Upside Down Reflections can also be difficult to achieve as most people make a few simple mistakes that don't get the right effect.
• Be sure to focus to on the reflection and not the object when taking the picture.
Also, you can experiment by disrupting the reflection. For example, you can toss a rock into the water if that is the reflecting surface.
A Shadow Heart trick can be performed with a simple ring, an open book and a light source from behind.
• If you set the ring upright in an open book in the crevasse between each side, the light source will create a shadow ring on the paper.
The Unscrewed Light bulb is a great photographic trick that can be performed with a simple, incandescent bulb that is frosted and a small light source behind the bulb itself.
• When you take a photograph of the bulb with a smaller light source, such as an LED or even a small flashlight, behind it, the bulb will appear to be on even though it is unattached to any power source.
Such simple, yet effective tricks are only a small part of the information presented in this book. You can learn a great deal about how to create new types of images from your imagination thanks to the building blocks of information inside this book.
