Ghost of Micheal Vincent - created by northphoto


Ghost of Micheal Vincent
Favs: 4SBS: n/aHi-resRank: 2/38Score: 71.5% (37)6287 views

The ghost of Micheal Vincent seen walking the streets.

This is a single shot, (about 2 minute exposure) taken on a unusually foggy night. With my wife standing still, I stepped into the frame around the one minute mark and walked towards her. All lighting is from street lights. (5 years and 1528 days ago)

First try? or did it take a few shots. Always wanted to play with this for fun.

author says:

Technically this was the first of this specific shot. But I have made a hobby of photographing "the supernatural". Here's some of my tips and tricks:
Find a scene with as few distractions as possible, especially "modern" ones such as cars, street lights etc.
Shoot or transfer to black and white, color is a distraction and takes away from the mystery and eeriness.
Use as little light as possible and set to underexpose. These photographs should not be "technically correct."
Set your camera at it's highest ISO and contrast.
Experiment, practice and have fun.
I have more in-depth techniques, but i won't waste your time going into the details here.

Thanks! I have a general idea but those tips will help me get to it faster. Need to find a location now!

author says:

Here's an idea I've had some fun with to get you started.
Use any house you have access to, your own, a friend's, family, any house. Shortly after sunset turn on one light in the house, preferably an upstairs one. Set your camera up in the front yard, getting as much of the house in frame as possible, (watch out for distractions). Next, have someone stand in the window of the room with the light on. Open the camera shutter and have them move away from the window about halfway through the exposure. Experiment with the exposure times until you see the following:
General shape and texture of the front of the house, but not detail.
A ghost in the window.
Ideally, but not required, the person in the window should have long, dark hair and hold a light to the front of their face. The house should face east, this will create a light halo around the house. Bare, leafless trees always add to the mystery.
I once did this shot of a friends house while I was house sitting and left a print of it on the counter.
They haven't ask me for a favor since.

Hope - created by VBonnefond


Hope
Favs: 0SBS: n/aHi-resRank: 38/38Score: 57.5% (0)7810 views

This picture has been taken for a book I'm writing with my wife. It represents my hope in life. In spite of breaks in my soul (represented by the stripes due to the broken mirror I used), my mind is safe even if I'm looking through the past. I'm in the deep blue sky and imbued with light of Life. (5 years and 1868 days ago)

Sadness - created by VBonnefond


Sadness
Favs: 0SBS: n/aHi-resRank: 38/38Score: 59.5% (0)7142 views

A day when I was so sad I had to express this sadness through my art: photography.
To realize it, I've used a mirror and a tilt lens and... a lot of tries and patience (witch I haven't a lot at this time !^) (5 years and 1868 days ago)

author says:

Oooohhh !!! I'm so sorry !!! How I wish nobody could suffer that way :^(((
Thank you for your compliment indeed. I hope your pain will go away but it's so hard !

author says:

Thanks a lot, Missy. I feel markedly better now. The picture "Hope" is a proof for me. But, you know, life is not so easy for sensitive people...
I'm thinking of you and your family. In my way, I pray for you.
