Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Tricky"

Description
: Trick photography: Post photos that appear to be 'shopped, but aren't.


We ask that before submitting your photos you read and adhere to the following submission rules, including but not limited to the following:

- Submissions must be photographs; screen captures do not count as photographs.
- You must be the original photographer of your entry. Do not submit anyone else's photography as your own.
- You are only allowed to enter a photograph once. Do not submit the same photo to another contest later.
- You may enter 3 photos in each contest as long as each photo is of a different composition.
- Please post each photo separately so they can be voted for individually.


Ideally, your photograph should be presented as taken, with as little alteration as possible either digitally in-camera or in your image editor during post-processing. No selectively applied digital effects! No removal or addition of image elements, no spot treatments, and no HDR images, please.

With few exceptions (red-eye removal, sensor or scan dust removal), modifications to the original photograph must be made evenly across the image.
See the rules for more information on acceptable modifications, or check in at the Farktography Forums.

Legal: All photographers submitting photos to this contest are the legal copyright holders for the photos submitted and the photos are not to be considered free for any other use without written consent from the submitting photographers.

To have your photo website listed on the Farktography home page, please send your Fark username and url to admin(at)farktography.net and we'll get you up forthwith. (also, indicate if you're willing to share your photographs for use as source images in PhotoShop contests)

- Drop by the Farktography Forum (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)

- Image hosting sites can be found here.

Stroboscopic flash with long exposure creates multiple exposures within the same frame/exposure. Similar, but not the same as some other stroboscopic shots I've posted.

Well you knew somebody was going to do it. Hopefully it's different enough from corsec67's cat shot. I'm just starting to get the hang of taking normal pictures with my new camera. I can't do tricky yet without cheating a little.

30 second exposure of a loggerhead sea turtle, Canaveral National Seashore. About 10:45 at night. The red is from the red-lensed flashlights the rangers use so as not to scare the turtles.

While looking "shopped", I've recently discovered that infrared photography can achieve Vampyre vision...Regardless of age, or skin color. Yeah, it freaked me out a bit, too.....This is straight from the camera. I just cropped out the faces. This was a candid test..Ladies, I can now see right through you !! :)

They're digital desert camo pants based on the current USMC "MARPAT" digital pattern...they sorta disappear against the rock wall. My mother saw this picture and thought I was standing on the other side of the wall (if I had, I would have fallen 300' into the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone.)

outback_rebel: dgough: Catherine is a Brown Recluse? Cool shot irregaurdless. :)

Actually she appears to be a brown widow.


Brown widow is correct. She's the lesser known cousin. Poisonous but tends to be very shy and will retreat when startled. Last count, she had seven egg sacks throughout her web so I'm hoping to get a few "spiders are everywhere!" shots soon. :)

There was nothing unusual going on when this photo was taken. I'm not sure how I got that effect.
