Ghost Effect Photography Meetup

Ghost Effect Photography Meetup

Sunday the 31st of October
Lawrenceville, Pittsburgh - 6pm - 2 hours
During this photo meetup, we will explore the experimental technique of in-camera ghosting. Many can incorporate a transparent figure via post-production, but here will we learn how to capture this effect with speed lights and long exposures. And what better day to crate ghosts in their images than on Halloween? The takeaways in this meetup are understanding external flashes and shutter speeds. It is true experimental photographic techniques. Shooting in a cemetery is a somewhat sensitive location, so respect for the dead is imperative. When photographing grave stones, you MUST remove the names from them in post-production. If you do not possess the knowledge to do so, then you need to shoot near unmarked graves, near a statue, or mausoleum with no names attached. This cemetery is chalked full of accommodating locales- and similarly, we will be out of the property by dusk when the cemetery closes. This is an advanced topic, so a solid understanding of photography and the exposure triangle is paramount.
