Light Drawing Techniques
Light drawing is similar to light painting, but differs because the design is more specific.
Keep the camera about fifteen feet away from the subject. Using a flashlight, or other light source, begin making your pattern or design.
If you are drawing something simple such as a basic shape, you may wish to go over the pattern several times. If it is more complicated, stick to going over the pattern only one time fairly slowly to get the desired effect.
Using a flash effect in your photos will give you a cool special effect. Flash gives light for the picture.
Motion images are one of the most popular of types of trick photography and special effects available. One option is to freeze the entire image by shooting with a shutter speed of about one thousandth of a second. Another way to achieve motion is to pan your subject, following them while everything else around you continues to move.
When attempting a double exposure effect, two slightly underexposed images must be taken. These images will then be combined to create one double exposure image.
The superimposed images will overlap in the finished product, so try to get them to match so that everything looks uniform and natural, aside from the subject matter that you desire to look slightly unnatural and stand out.
HDR Photo Effects
HDR stands for High Dynamic Range and involves taking one or a series of images and combining or adjusting them after processing. Typically, this works by using three images of the exact scene, all taken using different shutter speeds.
Using special software, you can then combine these images to enhance the highlights and details, such as shadows. This helps the photographer to achieve the full effect of the scene as the naked eye would actually see it.
