#14 Ghosts, history and my photo student

One of my recent students, Ariel, e-mailed me some ghostly portraits he captured on a Night Light Custom Course I did through his workplace. We were braving the cold of a ‘cool’ Canadian February evening on Parliament Hill in Ottawa. While we explored the opportunities available in low light conditions, Ariel captured me (yes that is my handsome mug) twice in the same frame – no photoshop magic here, beyond basic tidying, just good photography know-how: Creative photo techniques and a fast moving Harry were all that were needed for this ghostly night time wonder.For you history buffs I am posing with none other than Emily Murphy’s statue, one of the Famous Five who fought for the right for women to be declared ‘persons’ and, therefore, be eligible for political life in Canada’s Senate.
