My Transparent Niece

I know everybody's going to have their Easter pix up today, but my camera is in another room, and the card with the pictures on it is in it. (Imagine that!) I'll try to get a few of those up later in the week. I hope everybody had a wonderful weekend, no matter how they spent it.

In the meantime, take a gander at this one:

I promise you that this is straight out of the camera. I have no idea how it happened: I was playing with F-stops and exposures and .. well, everything, but I was quite surprised to see the resulting photo. Any of you photographically inclined people got any ideas on how this happened? Anyways, it's My Best Shot Monday!

Very cool! I love odd pictures that are SOOC. I have no idea how it happened, but it reminds me of a picture I took back in the early '90. It looked like my cat was playing baseball. :-)

Very cool!

Kimberly said...

What a cool photo! She looks like a ghost. :)

I looked at your exif information and see the shutter speed was set to one second. My *guess* would be that the radiator was exposed first and then within that one second the child moved into the frame. Like I said, just a guess though. :)

Oh, and thanks for visiting my blog!

That is really cool - I also love those "happy mistakes".

Michelle Potter said...

That's very cool! It's definitely the result of a slow shutter speed. How awesome that it came out like that instead of just being blurry! :)

I have a similar photo, but I had to seriously edit it to get the effect. ;) But I have seen it done with slow shutter speeds before.

I ALWAYS favor SOOC shots any given day. And this ghostly image is why - so magestical! Mistakes gone good, right? :)
