Day 289 - The Ghost In The Camera.
Boo! It's Friday and for some reason ghost are at top of mind today. I started thinking about ghost hunters, people who look for paranormal activity. It seems like they are always trying to get a photo of elusive spirits. As far as I know, no one has capture a ghost on film. Today, I thought it would be interesting to play around with the techniques learned in the night photography post. Let's fire up the Slow Shutter app on our smart phones and dig up a small flashlight. Let's try our hand at some spooky photography and create some creepy images.
Here is how to get the same terrifying effect as the photos below.
- Fire up the Slow Shutter app.
- Take a small piece of red tissue paper and place it over the flashlight with a rubber band.
- Turn the "Capture Mode" to "Low Light."
- Slide the "Exposure Boost" to High.
- Slide the "Shutter Speed" to 30 or 60 seconds.
- Now find a super dark room and make some ghastly photos. Move the flashlight around at different angles. Hold your face for a few seconds and then change your expression.
Well, enjoy experimenting with the Slow Shutter. I am off to work on a costume for tomorrow's post. Stay tuned ghouls and goblins.
