Making Ghosts

How to make ‘ghost’ pictures of people. It really is pretty simple. The key is a long shutter speed, maybe a few seconds. The subject stands still for a second or two, then quickly moves out of frame so that area behind them is also exposed. The right combination of aperture, shutter speed, and time before the subject moves are very important, as well as the subject staying perfectly still while they are being exposed by the camera. It takes a little practice, but once you get the hang of it, it is really easy to reproduce in many lighting conditions.
