1800's Spirit Photographs

 Okay guys. I know it's not Halloween anymore, but I hope you enjoy these ghostly replicas from an era gone by. In the early days of photography, walking out of the exposure to create a ghost-like transparency was cutting edge special effects. And thus, the "spirit photograph" was born. We touched on the subject briefly in my History of Photography class, but the hokey expressions and scenes stuck with me. So, I created this series to pay homage to overacting through the ages. 

And let the hokey-ness continue...

I love this one! So incredibly crisp.
