Manipulate your audience’s mind to produce a picture that they have only been thought of. This diabolical trick from the devilishly clever Dan Harlan is an amazing piece of mentalism that plays well in a formal performance and a casual setting. Your audiences will discover the perfect picture in Photo Finish by Dan Harlan.

Here’s what happens:

The performer gives the audience a stack of photographs that has been cut into small pieces. The spectator freely mixes the pieces of photos any way they want. The magician then tells the spectator that they are going to perform a sort of photo recall. The magician describes a vivid image and then has the spectator sort the pieces of the photos while they are face down into four piles. The top of each pile is turned face up, and impossibly the spectator has managed to assemble all four pieces of the image the magician described.

Photo Finish comes complete with all of the props needed to perform this amazing routine. It’s part mentalism, part magic, and all-around amazing for your audience members. In addition to the props, you will receive expert instructions from Dan Harlan on how to perform this wonderful trick with minimal sleight of hand. The best part is that your spectator does all the work. This effect is more than a revelation. This is Photo Finish by Dan Harlan.

This is so good. The only trick I have bought recently where after learning ( within minutes) you want to chuck out the cards you receive and make up your own photos. I didn’t realise you can order paper photos online via app practically free of charge. This trick is perfect for customisation for corporate work, weddings is an obvious one with a photo of the happy couple…. or bizarre. It’s got so May applications. Well done Penguin people !

The nicest part of this effect is that it is simple to perform and will blow people's minds as it is customizable to whatever situation you may be in. Even before I received my deck, I made another personalized deck. For example ,as suggested, I made a deck in which the last photo set was the guest and told him to picture an event in his life that he would like to return to. The final set was a photo of him as a young man on a date with a young woman. Since he is a good sport and gay, it created a hilarious moment for all at this party. this is why this is a great purchase and Dan Harlan has created another great twist on this effect which seemingly is well known. Not so fast.

Such a great effect! This is one of those tricks where your presentation and the amazing magic can blow people away. I plan on using the exact photo he did for the reveal because it looks SO similar to a photo of my daughter around the same age.

I will be the first one to say it. The set of photos you receive is not the same as in the trailer. I think this is important to know, as I mainly bought the effect for the actual reveal of a little girl playing the piano as in the trailer.
I got this effect to be a part of a bigger, spooky show, about a little girl.
It should have been mentioned in the ad that you receive a different set of photos.
For 99% of people, this will not be an issue, but for me, it is.
Also, I don't live in the US, so finding the exact card stock as I received the other photos in, could be challenging. Or, I need to find and print another 10 photos which will just add to the actual cost of the effect.
Again, not an issue for most, but it could have been avoided altogether with one line in the product page.
I'm probably the only one who got it for the photo and not for the method :)

Great alternative to a deck Report this review

How do I like photo finish? Killing!
You know the premise, but with the photos the spectators guard is down because they are not quite expecting a trick again. Especially with the nice nostalgic story leading up to the reveal they are literally T-boned! Confused, since they are doing much of the handling.
Harlan is one of those master minds and excellent teacher. Magic hall of fame!

Great use of an old concept! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 22nd, 2022
Dan Harlan's "photo finish" is an excellent effect that has a myriad of applications. It is an outstanding use of an old concept that can be used in a variety of ways. I highly recommend this effect. It is commercial, practical and easy to perform, plus it has that classic "Dan Harlan touch."
