What a gorgeous image, Molly! Holden has been staring at it for twenty minutes, trying to figure out how you did it. 😉 ~C

“Even those I love the best
are strange. Nay, they are stranger than the rest.” (John Clare.)

Wonderfully mysterious image!

(Clare meant “strange” in a different sense from the modern one, but that doesn’t matter.)

People are strange, when you’re a stranger…

Interesting, atmospheric image, Molly! Very fun.

I put a single light source behind the white screen I have and then set the camera to long exposure, with the ISA set low so that it didn’t burn out the highlights then I moved through the 3 different poses as slowly but consistently keeping my bottom half in place hence that being solid and the rest of me being ghostly. It is a first attempt and I will try again because I think it can be improved upon. I did some with the Christmas tree that i am really pleased with but you will have to wait till December to see those *laughs

Gosh. This is quite unsettling in its way.

This could be the poster for a sci fi movie; not only impressed with the way you did it, but with however you came up with the idea in the first place. x

This is so cool and atmospheric! There’s also something very calming about it, to me? Almost like you are doing yoga and the camera has captured each stage of your pose, while also showing how you are grounded to the earth. Very lovely. Can’t wait to see more of this technique in the future.
