I have been searching for easy trick photography that my kids can do at home but I haven’t been able to find much. We experimented with trick photography a few years ago and purchased a used book on Amazon entitled Tricky Pix that was a perfect starting point to learn. Since then, I have been looking online for a blog post, article, or website devoted to kid friendly trick photography and have only been able to find harder, more technical kinds of photography for professionals. My interest in photography is in my genes, inherited from my photographer father who owned his own studio at one time and specialized in underwater photography.  Also, my big brother, Harry Parker, is a professional photographer who specializes in sky diving and aerials. My husband (then boyfriend) gave me my first real camera in the 1980’s for my 17th birthday and I have been taking pictures ever since.
Trick photography is something I have wanted to explore more and would love any tips or new ideas. It would have been better to do these shots on ground that stayed the same, such as all grass. Place your camera on a tripod; it helps when aligning layers if you have not shifted much between exposures. It is better if you could ask your subject to sit somewhere, and not shift too much between shots, ask to sit straight, take a picture, ask to place hands on the face gently, it is important that the hands are centered else it will look odd in the results. None of the above mentioned things, tripod, portrait lens, using manual mode etc are mandatory, you could easily get the shots shooting handheld in aperture priority mode, but taking the extra effort to set up and perfectly frame the shot, making sure that you use the right equipment for the job and that your subject stays still, exposures are consistent etc helps get better results.
Now that you have both images as layers, change the blending mode of the top layer to overlay, do try other blending modes too, sometimes they give better results depending on the base pictures.
So this is how our picture now looks once I changed the blending mode to overlay and adjusted the opacity a bit.
Try adjusting the sliders or contrast settings to get the right balance between black and white areas in your picture.

If you can pull the camera tight to you, you will find that it becomes much easier to hold it steady that if you are holding it out in the middle of thin air.  The more you can make that camera an extension of you, the easier it will be to keep it from moving.


Using the timer will take away the tension you would otherwise feel with having to keep the camera steady while you pushed the release button, and that will help you keep things more still throughout the rest of the shot as well. Photography Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for professional, enthusiast and amateur photographers. I am trying to search on internet the technique for the following image but I can't seem to get the much info on it. For everyone who is interested: his name is Evan Sharboneau, and his youtube channel is called Photo Extremist, the same as his site. It is the composite of three images, a pair of hands, a face and a rough textured wall or floor. Whilst composite images can be done in camera, a classic double exposure is only capable of adding images together. For an example of this, take a look at Craig Walsh's surreal 3D projections show in Huffington Post site. Why do you "skip trying to explain the sample photo" when the OP asked specifically about that image? To accomplish a similar look would be impossible in camera as you would need to apply blending that isn't possible through multiple exposures and would need to apply effects to get a painted look. Update: Hmm, I did find the same image on a stock photo site, however the sample there doesn't seem to have the background texture of this one. Because it has attracted low-quality or spam answers that had to be removed, posting an answer now requires 10 reputation on this site (the association bonus does not count).

The pictures used in this article were shot in a garden restaurant; only light available was coming from a couple of candles and serial lights used for decoration. Now all I did was to use the eraser tool to clean up a bit and the result is the image on top of this page. In a double exposure the whites of the eyes would be visible in the dark areas between the fingers, strongly suggesting a more complex blending process (multiply, overlay etc.) performed in an image editor such as Photoshop.
But I was actually more interested in a step by step tutorial or a link which could explain this technique. I've just browsed thru a few hundred photos from this photographer and this man seems to be his favourite male model (perhaps the photographer himself?). Have a slide projected on the surface of your choice and place your camera very near to the projector for photographing the combined view of the slide and underlying surface.
Slides of different faces were projected on trees in a park, making the trees look like large heads.
Just to be sure repeat the process once or twice more, some pictures just won’t align. You could also try to add some texture or using any other filters on the image for different effects. So there probably was some editing done to the original face picture as well, to get the effect pop out even better. The underlying surface could be hands, like in the sample photo, or practically any other surface that reflects light well enough to be photographed. You then change the top layers blending mode to overlay (try other blending modes too, sometimes they give better results), experiment a bit with opacity settings, try changing to black and white, adding some texture etc. All this image is doing is showing face in the hands so to do that during blending one HAS to remove nose or whatever.
