Evan Sharboneau

1-evan_sharboneauEvan Sharboneau is the author and photographer responsible for Trick Photography and Special Effects, an extremely popular eBOOK on trick photography that thousands of people are now using to create their own unique and almost magical images…

Evan is a major believer that you don’t need an expensive camera to take good photographs, and in fact, he started off in photography with a relatively cheap camera and used it for a long time before upgrading to something more expensive and a little bit higher quality.

Using a camera that cost about $100-150, Evan is able to produce high quality images consistently, employing the techniques that he talks about in his book…

The SECRET, says Evan, is that “you don’t need a super heavy duty camera to take great picturesWhat matters are the photographer and his or her ability to use the camera in an interesting and artistic way”.
