Photography Fun – Tips and Tricks

Photography tips and tricksI have always liked making my images look their best in Photoshop or Picassa or PaintShop Pro.

And, you have no doubt heard the expression, “Photoshop me in,” when someone wants to be part of a picture who was not present when the photo was taken.

So combining these two concepts was a natural for me.

When I came across some videos by a guy who calls himself the Photo Extremist, I was all in for learning some of his tricks.

Here is the first photography “trick” I did.

I used a wire through the pieces to hold everything in place. Then I eliminated the bits that were holding stuff together to give the illusion of a floating banana.

Then I tried this photography trick – putting myself into the picture as three different characters.
