Kokoro - Wandering Through a Photographic Life

Backstage Kokoro

A "behind-the-scenes" look at selected images in my Kokoro project —
Content, photographic notes, EXIF data, creative process, miscellaneous commentary, and original digital captures. And now with additional audio comments about selected images!

From Kokoro #049 - Japanese Ghosts

I'm tempted to let you guess what's going on here. Very fast shutter speed? Photoshop trickery? Recominant images? No, it's far simpler than any of that — spider web and a little luck. In fact, this is almost a straight shot from the camera with only a very little modification to the original file. Nonetheless, in spite of the fact that I know what it is, it still gives me the spooks. Maybe a ghost made the web just to fool us!
