I had a few hours for myself in the French Quarter, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. I thought this was a fun shadow shot of a ghostly figure being cast on the building. I was lucky to use the available lighting and found an interesting angle to me. I like the clock just above the ghostly figure being cast.

Happy Halloween!


I didn't have a tripod so I knew the slowest I could handhold this shot was 1/30s...so I went with 1/60s just to be sure. I had the f-stop set to f1.4 to let in a lot of light and I had to bump the ISO to 800 to properly expose this photo. Simple enough. Right?

If you haven't read my article on the fundamentals of manual exposure, then you are missing out on probably the single most important photography lesson of your life!
