Ghost of Christmas Present

JackieR inspired me to try to make some ghost images. Being a retired engineer, I naturally started with some measurements and calculations. I found that it took me 0.9 seconds to walk 3 feet, so I started with a shutter speed of 1 second and set my camera to shutter priority. I was mostly invisible as I walked across the scene. I found that 1/2 second worked best.
Brilliant!! FAV.

Fun! I think it’s wonderful that you are experimenting with different settings and techniques. Thanks for the challenge you gave me. For yours, I’d like to give you a composition challenge — to experiment with forced perspective. I think you can find plenty of examples by doing a Google search of the term. I hope you will have some fun with it. Let me know if, for some reason, that will not work for you at all.

@mcsiegle Is it fair to use Photoshop to combine two images? For example,

Thanks for asking. Well, if you try and find you are unable to set up a real forced perspective shot, then go ahead. But I think you should give it a try to do it with only the composition of the shot providing the illusion. Here's one article on how to do that There are others if you do a google search.
