Well, giving you the first trick, it is actually very easy to perform. Water to Ice, well what you will do is pour water into a cup and then dump out a couple of ice cubes and no water. People will wonder how the water turned into ice. This can be really surprising for some who don’t know the trick, for this trick you need a cup that isn’t see-through, maybe a solid color cup will do. When no one is looking, you will stuff a sponge in the bottom of the cup. Then put a couple ice cubes on top of the sponge inside the cup. While everyone is watching, pour water into the cup. The sponge will absorb the water so when you turn the cup over all that will pour out will be the ice cubes. That can definitely a treat and the magic kits are so simple as well.

As you pick your hand up, rub your fingers together and look surprised like the coin is vanishing. Then turn your hand to the on-lookers and show them your hand is empty.

Performing Arts with Your Very Own Magic Tricks

October 30, 2008

It’s not like an easy task, having to know more magic tricks can be a good thing but how about performing it? Any magician who performs a routine, whether it is on the stage or on the streets, knows exactly in what order his tricks will be done. These orders are not thrown together randomly. In fact, a tremendous amount of thought goes into arranging the order of these tricks. This tutorial will help you to understand how to organize the tricks in your routine and how to transition seamlessly from one to the next. Magic tricks are performance based and if you are a struggling magician, you should know better. You need a plan, some sort of a game plan to make your show be on a high note, so let me give you some steps that would be very helpful.

Ok, so let’s start with the pre-show preparation, before performing, list the tricks you know how to perform. It is really important because you need to make an order of what you would perform in front of your live audience, most people would not care about it, but let me tell you that it is important that you pay close attention to this. The details and whatnot, you should also arrange the tricks in order from easiest to hardest. In that way the hardest will be played as your finale, the one that would be your encore. Of course you don’t want to perform something that would be an easy cheap trick; you want something riveting, so putting the hardest as the last can be helpful.

Next are you needed to choose a small amount of them and decide how they are best organized? Remember that a magic routine should seem like one big trick, not a series of small tricks. Transitioning seamlessly will not allow spectators to think you are doing something else. It will all seem like one trick. So you better take note on this tip and see what you can do with it. Play with your tricks and be sure to make some good moves on it. Start with a card trick that involves the spectator memorizing a card. It will be a good filler and would entertain the crowd, plus the interaction with you and the crowd will be a nice touch into your magic show.

Continue with that chosen card until eventually letting the spectator keep the card. Since you no longer have the card, you are forced to move onto another series of tricks. See how this works? You organize them in a logical fashion that allows you do present multiple tricks as one and then seamlessly move on. Now that the card tricks are over, bring out a coin, or take your routine into another direction. Lastly, always leave them wanting more! Stop transitioning after you reach the climax of your performance. At their biggest reaction, no matter what it comes, walk away. It will give them the same effect that a cliffhanger in a television show or movie can give. With that kind of performance I think you’ll be known noted and will be in good standing. Your magic tricks will be much appreciated and you’ll have the crowd captured for sure.

People have been really looking into dog pictures and find it interesting. I think that a part of it is because they are also good in pictures.

Dogs doesn’t have to pose or smile or whatever, they just need to be themselves, find a good spot, take aim and click that button and there you have it a good shot. Of course not every shot can be good, there could be bad shot as the dog moves or awkward positions, the light, shadows etc. there could be a lot of things that can affect your shot, but still being aware of it is a plus, a bonus per say. So when taking dog pictures there are really important things that you should consider and put valiant effort to get that masterpiece.

Dog pictures can be found in a lot of different places and can be made in a lot of different resources. So, when trying to get the next big thing in dog pictures you should always be ready, you should be at least equipped if not that ready, so that when the right time comes and a good moment closes in, bam you can get that picture right.
