Special Effects Photography Techniques

Evan Sharboneau uses only an entry level DSLR, a Nikon D50 to create the mind-blowing photography tricks you see on this page. He reveals his secrets in his very detailed tutorial, Trick Photography and Special Effects, a three-module e-book series packed with the coolest techniques in trick photography and photo-manipulation. It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner, an advanced, amateur, or a seasoned professional. This e-book was written and organized in a way so that everyone will take something home with them.


Many of the post-processing effects used by pros in wedding portraits are described here. For example, ever seen portraits where the bride and groom appears in multiple locations within the same picture?

Or light painting techniques that make a photograph look like a painting. Ever wanted to learn how to light-paint like a pro?

Trick Photography and Special Effects

How about long exposure effects where car headlamps create long streaks of light without using Photoshop? Evan covers everything you need to know on capturing those beautiful illuminated long exposure photos you have been dreaming about. With 295 pages, 9 hours of how-to video tutorials and over 300 photographs from over 100 artists around the world, many different light sources are reviewed, describing what they do and how to use them.


There are so many real examples, all clickable that link to the web for even further review.  This book even has clickable links to step by step tutorials for many of the techniques illustrated.

Trick Photography and Special Effects

Learn mind-blowing special effects and optical illusion techniques that add drama and surreal creativity to your images. Adobe Photoshop software is recommended for this module but isn’t 100% essential. Learn how to stop taking boring images and use HDR Photography and Infrared Photography to turn any dull photograph into a dramatic hyper-realistic image that “pops” with fantastic color and depth. This is extremely useful for capturing what your eye actually sees.


Two-thirds of the techniques DO NOT require Photoshop to create, in fact they’re done right in the camera! And those that do need Photoshop, don’t even require the latest version. Even Photoshop CS2 or Elements 10 will do.

Learn how to create special effects like Multiplicity Photography, Levitation Photography, Floating Fruit, and more.
