031/365   Ghosts of Page-Walker Hotel031/365 Ghosts of Page-Walker Hotel

 

Day 31

I went to one of Cary's landmarks, the Page-Walker Art and History Center for today's photo. I was shocked when I reviewed my photos - there are ghosts on the porch! I didn't see them when I was behind my camera. And honest - I have not photoshopped this photo - it is pretty much straight out of the camera! That doesn't mean as much as it used to :).

But you have to admit, the Ghost of Page-Walker sure is a good looking guy!

 

I didn't notice the ghost the last time I photographed at the old hotel.

 

 

Photo info: Shot with my wide angle lens, this is a multiple exposure - two shots.  First with me by the door, and then the second with me at the post.  The were merged with  'Average' mode in the camera.  I thought dark clothing would work best... not so sure about that choice now.  Guess it worked out ok.

Lessons learned: Experimented with 'Additive', 'Average' and 'Darkest' modes of the multiple exposure settings.  They give dramatically different results.  At first it seems like multiple exposure is a gimmicky feature, but it really is a valuable creative tool. 

Here are the two shots that the camera merged.
