Bug Eyed Photography Tutorial


  1. A digital camera
  2. A tripod or flat surface
  3. Photoshop


  1. Put your camera on your tripod and face it towards your subject
  2. Take two pictures in Manual mode, one with your eyes looking up and one with them looking down. Keep your head as still as possible.
  3. Open up your photos in Photoshop and stack them on top of each other as layers.
  4. Next, create a Layer Mask on the top layer, select a black soft brush, and paint over an eye.
  5. Your done!
