People make photography InterestingThe one consistent element that makes a photographinteresting are people. We just like to look atourselves or other people. This applies to trickphotography as well, whether it s levitation, forcedperspective, light paintings, and more. Being able toextract the best out of people and put them infantastic situations, are what makes trick photographyso mentally stimulating. So here are some great ideasfor you to incorporate into your trick photographyphotos to take it from good to great. 3. 1. Tell a personal story When you photograph people, involve something thatmakes it more personal and individual. You couldinclude their favorite people, objects, or pets. You could also go the other way and include thingsthat they dislike on purpose. The idea is to have some sort of interaction that tells apersonal story, or captures a little bit of the true spiritof the person being photographed. 4. 2. Have fun with your subjects Most of my favorite trick photos are those that lookslike a lot of fun. It invites the viewer to try it out forthemselves. So the key to making sure yourphotographs look fun, is to simply have fun! Get some close friends together and tell them whatyou re aiming to do. Allow them to play around andexperiment so you get that natural interaction andgenuine smiles. Nothing kills the mood and fascination of a well-executed trick photo than a sour or gloomy face,unless you re aiming for that particular mood. 5. 3. Don t get caught unprepared Ifyou re going to capture genuine smiles or anythingelse for that matter, remember to always be readywith the camera. Nothing is more frustrating than knowing a greatphoto opportunity passed right in front of you whenyou re not ready. Some of the best trick photographs I ve ever seen areunscripted. 6. 4. Nothing wrong with getting in close The closer you are, the more personal a photographis. Don t be afraid to get as close as possible and clipthe people in the frame. After all, we re trying to create a mood, story, or aconnection through our pictures, not recordingeverything in a scene for preservation. 7. 5. Go outdoors There are plenty of outstanding trick photography andspecial effect shots that are done in studios. Being indoors afford you more control over theenvironment and different variables, hence a greatresult. Tend to pay more attention to those that are doneoutdoors if presented with a gallery of indoor andoutdoor trick photos. It s like watching a great magic trick and knowingthat it would be much harder and interesting whendone outdoors. 8. 6. Catch people off-guard Among levitation photography enthusiasts, NatsumiHayashi of yowayowa camera is one of the best self-portrait levitation photo-takers I ve seen. The beautiful photos of herself levitating in busystreets and ordinary locations, makes her photosunique and almost surreal. The faces of peoplenoticing her levitation efforts are where people derivethe most joy from her pictures. I just can t help but imagine what goes through theirhead when they see a girl taking pictures of herselfjumping in weird poses in the middle of the street. 9. 7. Use a different angle Most of us tend to see the world from the sameperspective because we all stand upright. Take photos from a low angle and you will see howdifferent the world looks from the point of a child orpet. If you re taking forced perspective photos, thenchanging the angle of your camera can sometimesdramatically alter the end results. 10. 8. Capture natural reactions or not For normal photography, you want to capture naturalemotions and reactions. This also works for trick photography, but I do findthat going completely in the opposite direction tend toproduce interesting results. Because trick photography is sometimes surprising,using a totally out-of-place emotion or reactionfurther reinforces that message. 11. 9. Pay attention to your background The background is as important as the subject you arephotographing. It should complement and not distract the eye fromthe subject. One thing you should pay close attention to are thecolors of the background. Certain colors such as red, and green can trigger theeye to look, and drag attention away from the mainsubject. 12. 10. Knowledge and practice To improve your photos you need to keep yourself upto date with new ideas and techniques that otherpeople have come up with and tried. Innovation comes when old ideas and new ideas getcombined and assimilated to become something new. Get some guide and books so you don t waste timelearning what other people already know. Most ofwhat you know should come from learning morefrom Evan s experience , and the rest fromexperimenting. 13. ImagineYour imagination is your biggest trick photographyasset. Photograph things and people that interest youand add your own twist into it. There are plenty oftrick photos online but people are always interested tosee more because each photographer is unique, interms of skill, experience, point of view, message,and style.
