So after many frustrating shots that I ended up hating for day 3.. I ended up with this one.
My wife and I firmly believe we have a ghost in the house, and she thinks it lives in the attic.
That gave me the idea for this shot.
After pondering it a bit I figured I'd do a long exposure with some limited movement to get the ghost like effect. The attic stairs are a terrific creepy backdrop, especially when lit with a single overhead bulb.
I added a small desk lamp to my left to get some highlight on the front of me.
Not a perfect shot, but I dig it.
