Jason the Over-Dressed Ghost
I stumbled over a box a pictures in the basement, and I found a little mini-album of more old photo-experiments. I kind of forgot these!
Remember that double-me shot I shared a month or so ago? I forgot that I did another one at the same sitting.
This variety of shot is much easier to pull off. Basically, I set up the photo to require a certain number of seconds for a proper exposure, say 8. After exposing the film for 4 seconds with me there, my assistant (Dad again) turned off the light.
After slipping out of the shot, the light got flipped on for the final 4 seconds to complete the exposure. The overall effect is a see-through, ghostly image.
Anyone care to name this wonderful piece of 80's art??
