This was made by using a slow shutter speed combined with flash. Flash fired, subject moved out of frame, and then the background was formed with ambient light.

Sorry, but I had to stick this worthless comment on your entry cause I want to enter next week.

Okay, here are the details: First, I put the camera on a tripod to support it during a extremely long duration shot. Unfortunately, I didn't have anyone who could assist me so I had to do this completely on my own, which didn't prove to be easy. I illuminated myself using a flash, as many speculated. I set the flash (Nikon SB-28) on manual at 1/32 power, set the self timer, and walked into the shot. As soon as the flash fired, I quickly left the frame and allowed the ambient light to form the rest of the exposure. The disappointing thing, at least to me, is that this shot was actually one of a series of many shots to simply test this concept. Once I proved that I could successfully pull it off in-camera, I had a much more elaborate shot planned. Unfortunately, I became sick with a cold and was not able to do it. So as a last ditch effort, I submitted this picture to gauge what the response would be. But you can be certain that I will incorporate my original idea in some future submission.

Cool concept! Was this done in the camera or in photoshop? Black and white REALLY makes this image! Nice job.

I hope this was a strobe effect. A wee bit grey, lacking contrast, but otherwise very nicely done trick shot. photo 8 Transparency 7 total 7 swash

Clever idea!

I'm in awe! I am trying to figure this out... my guess: a long exposure - run in, stand, run out... but I don't know how that wouldn't leave blur lines.... Please post a how to on this! I envisioned something like this, but didn't get past the idea to figure it out - and know I wouldn't have figured it out! Okay.. I'm rambling. (10)

A Ghostly picture that would have been sooo much better if the building in the shoulders area had not been so lighted. I feel it spoiled it for you.
