The influence of my ghosts.

The influence of my ghosts.

This take was painted with light. I used the F80 analog camera and the AF50/1.8 fixed lens, manualy set to F8. The photograph is made in 3 steps : a flash-exposure of myself and the two ghosts, also depicted by me. On the flash a long, small paper tube was fixed, so the ray of light was narrow and aimed. If not, the entire surroundings would be exposed and now only my figure was exposed. After this I stood once to the left and once to the right of my original position and I was painted with a 20 W. halogen lamp, fixed in a long tube of 80 cm., while I was moving slowly. This movement and exposure together constitute the 2 ghosts on the picture. And why is my mouth opened in the middle of the picture? It's just because I control the flash by sound. By shouting, the flash went off. So I could determine the moment of the flash while I'm on the photograph.
