    Default Double or Nothing - NOT Photoshopped!

    No it's not Photoshopped. And no, it's not twins. (And no, they are not ghosts...although they are transparent).
    Here's how I took this shot: Position the subject on one side. Set camera on tripod with 30 second shutter speed. Press shutter. You have 30 seconds to do the rest, which is to turn out the lights (it needs to be night time or at least completely dark when the lights are out). Subject then moves to the second position. Turn the lights back on. The camera captures everything that it can see during the 30 seconds, which is two of the same subject!!! Cool huh?

    Of course the camera can only see him when the lights are on. It's also why he looks see through, because the camera has also captured the wall each time the light was on, so it is showing both subject and background in the shot. Great fun!

    Are you shooting for 30 seconds twice or a total of 30 seconds. What are the camera settings?

    I question if you really need to turn the lights out if this is a long exposure, as if it only takes a second to move the camera probably will not pick that up.

    Many cameras have multiple exposure options that make this kind of thing easier to do in camera even when you don't have the option to turn out the lights.

    Great shot and idea. Not only is this cool, but could be a lot of fun. Just imagine what a bunch of kids could do with this.

    Yup. On my camera I can do up to 9 exposures on a single "frame".

    Interesting and nice. To get the people sharper against the background, I think a flash would have worked nice. Turn out lights, flash once, get the subject to change position, and flash again. You don't even need it to be controlled by the camera, just experiment with flash power and trigger in your hand.

    Or, did I miss some thing?
