Then you might like to read this special note from Neil to help you decide.
Photography is a creative pursuit. Capturing an image as it appears to the eye is only one way, and possibly the less fun way to create photos. Like any other tools, the tools of photography can be used in limitless ways to push the boundaries of creativity, and some of the most striking images are made when those tools are used in ways their original inventors could never have imagined. Such is the way with special effects photography.
SFX photography is a huge and complex topic and there are many different ideas and many different ways to create them. Rather than try and be a comprehensive guide to every kind of SFX photography (an impossible task), this book focuses on 11 different shoots, each one providing a detailed look at one particular photo and how it was created.
The purpose of this is to give you an immediate example of a SFX shot and show you in detail how the effect was achieved. I will give you everything you need to know to re-create that shot yourself, and introduce you to the concepts with a real practical example.
Building on what is discussed in each photo shoot, I’ll then expand on the technique and show you other variations and images to get your creative juices flowing so that you can try the ideas yourself and take what you have learned and expand on it. Naturally, this isn’t the only or even the best way to create these effects, but using them as a starting point you can launch yourself into the world of SFX photography.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did putting if together for you.
