I Can Make People Disappear!

No not that way.

Through timed exposures! Heh! There were a bunch of kids goofing around in the bottom of this picture at the time I snapped it off. They were mnoving around enough that they just didn't show up on the exposure. If you look in the lower left though you can see some of their friends ghosted there. There were stationary enough that my camera magic didn't make them go POOF!

Water Magic!

The fairy fountain concept. Timed and filtered.

Taken at about 5:15 PM in full sun. Not too bad, nu?

Some would say that shots like this have become somewhat of a cliché. But I like it. Taking this series taught me a lot about the interaction between camera, light, filtering, timing.
More later.
