Can you used a borrowed and shuffled deck in Photographic?

Can you used a spectators deck, then directly have them shuffle it and still have the trick work? Or can you at least borrow a spectators deck set up the trick privately then allow them to shuffle the cards?

Preparation is not something you're going to be able to do while watched (or within a few seconds). A normal deck is used but prep is required, and any shuffles need to be controlled, i.e. not done by the spectator.

A "spectator's deck?" How often is a spectator carrying a deck around? I think I have used a spectator's deck twice at their hours in 40 years. Stop phishing for the secret this is not real magic yes it is a trick...

The spectator does indeed get to actually shuffle cards.

Hope this helps.

Hi there! This trick is intended to be performed with a bicycle rider back deck with a small preparation which is meant to be done privately. The cards can be shuffled during the performance though and he explains a way that allows that :)
