    There is a general rule or guideline used in both photography and television production by the professionals. related to "special techniques" and effects.

    The special technique MUST contribute to the overall effectiveness of the image or it should NOT be done. There are all kinds of special techniques and effects possible, but one does NOT use them just because they are there.

    There has to be a good reason for using a technique that is directly related to the content of the particular image. Otherwise it is a distracting weakness and a flaw by the photographer.

    Longer, hand-held exposures that give a painterly quality to scenic photos, as well as other types of subjects, like Ernst Haas pioneered in color back in the 1960's.

    Second-curtain flash + slow shutter speeds at twilight and at night

    "Camera tossing" (do a Google search on that subject).

    Monochrome conversions of RGB color captures.

    Very shallow DOF photos. Fake "tilt-shift lens" post-processing effects done in Photoshop--sometimes called the miniature effect.

    Something related to multiple exposures -- shoot a roll of film, rewind it just enough so the leader sticks out, and let a friend load and shoot the same roll.

    Here's my example of "twisting the lens", is this what you're looking for?[​IMG]
