Another cheat day. This one was also taken the night of twenty-four and edited on twenty-six. Last year, one night, I was playing around with my camera. I set it to the bulb setting, which leaves the shutter open as long as you hold down the shutter release. Then I used the flash as well. It flashes when you first push the button down and when you release it. So, if you move around it can create a double exposure look. That is how this was made. I looked one way, pushed the shutter, held it for a second, looked the other way and let the shutter go. It took a few trys to get it perfect. It looked much better in black and white with a hint of sepia. I like it.
