"Dottie Darko" by #BKCmember @apisukh 😸 👻 Get into the spirit of visual storytelling and create ghostly portraits using your camera's Bulb mode like how Lanna did here with her beloved cat Dottie.
How to get the look:
1) Set your camera to Bulb Mode and put it on a tripod
2) Seat your model/pet? in front of the camera.
3) Turn out the lights.
4) Hold down the shutter for 10-30 seconds while having a friend beam or "paint" light onto your subject's face with a flashlight 🔦while you're still holding down the shutter (e.g. exposing the image)
5) Then release the shutter and viola – you've got yourself a spooky portrait!
Experiment with different time values, lights and setups. If you capture something cool, let us know and we'll share it with our community.
Have fun and get spooky!

One of our favorite photos from the @seeingcollective DISCONNECT photo show captured on 35mm film by @kennywu who also snagged the prize for Best Analog Photo presented by @lomographyusa. Good work, Kenny! We love the colors in this surreal image with perfect little light leaks. Happy accidents are the best!
*Speaking of Analog, don't forget to catch our Darkroom Basics and Color Darkroom Crash Courses later this month @gowanusdarkroom. They're a whopping 31% OFF right now. Link in bio! 🔗

BKC member @apisukh had her portrait series "Desert Brothers" featured last week on @aintbad – an indie publisher of new photographic art. Check it out on her page!
“Inspired by the creativity and independent spirit of today’s modern youth, this photographic portrait essay features Atticus and Avery Stannard, two brothers with contrasting backgrounds that share a mutual passion for self-expression through clothes.”
