Last semester when I started writing for Where Creativity Works, my first ever blog post was about the “ghost photoshoot trend” that the shutterbugs had done an activity based around. It was my first time running an activity for the club by myself as VP, and I was incredibly nervous. Looking back now and seeing how much I’ve learned through leading the club, and how I’ve been able to handle the role despite my nervousness, is very reassuring! This year I am very glad to say we had even more participants, and everyone had a great time! We hope this tradition carries on each year, and considering how popular it is with the members I think it definitely will.
If you haven’t read that post, here’s some of the images from last years shoot
While I did really like the style in which I shot the ghost photos last year, I decided to switch things up this year so as to not end up with photos that looked too similar. I still used direct flash, but forgoed the panty hose over the lens. While normally I avoid noise in low light photos at all cost, I embraced the pixelated look in some of the images, and upped the vibrancy in the photos to create a specific style.
