The mental photography card trick is one of the easiest card tricks out there but it’s also an extremely impressive trick that leaves most people in awe asking “what the…?”.

Basically the trick creates the illusion that the magician has a blank set of cards with no images on either side of the cards. Then after a quick shuffle and mixing up of the cards the magician is able to turn one of the cards from a blank card back into a regular card complete with a number and illustration on the back. Then the magician is able to turn the whole set of blank cards into regular cards and then even turn them back into blank cards again.

Then to reveal card and successfully predict it the magician can just ruffle through the cards and take note of a specific card and then “pinkie break” it. Then the magician can say “such and such card will now come”, tap the deck and then break it where the “pinkie break” is and the card is revealed to the audience.

Then to reveal all of the cards the magician can just flip through the deck from the bottom and because all of the cards with blank fronts are shorter you’ll only see the non blank faces.
