Ghostly Halloween

It’s Halloween!

I wanted to photograph some ghostly figures, something a little creepy but yet somehow poetic and beautiful to celebrate.





How to do this?

Take a sheet of tracing paper or any other type of paper that is slightly opaque but transparent, tape to a window where the sun is hitting, place your hand in between the window and the sheet of paper and voilà!

Basically like this:


I was shooting at ISO 100, 1/160, f/5.6.

 For this ‘behind the scene’ shot, I had to accentuate the shadows significantly so you would see the tracing paper.

Have fun!
