Comments for Walter Wick's Optical Tricks

Walter Wick's Optical Tricks: 08/03/10

 cover art (Link goes to Powells)My kids love the I Spy books. The man behind the photography is Walter Wick. His photography has inspired some of my son's photography. So when we saw Walter Wick's Optical Tricks which explains how he makes his optical illusions for the I Spy books we had to check it out.

The book is a good but short introduction to setting up photographic optical illusions. The ones involving mirrors got Sean's attention most. I think because they are such simple devices but create such amazing results.

So our only complaint with the book is its length. It's like an appetizer to photographic effects. I know if there were a longer and more in depth one, we would love to read it.

That sounds like such a fun book - too bad it's not longer.
