ScareFX Ghost 2008

Tonight we have our ghost flying in the upstairs window. I shot a short clip with a Nikon D90 in video mode. The low light capability of that camera is quite impressive.

The still shot had the following EXIF metadata:

Size:2.9MB 10/18/2008 11:35:30 PM
Dimensions: 4288 x 2848 pixels
Camera model NIKON D90
Camera Date 2008:10:18 23:35:30
Resolution 4288 x 2848
Flash Not Used
Focal length 105.0mm
Exposure time 0.067s (1/15)
Aperture f/5.6
ISO 3200
Metering Mode Matrix
Exposure Shutter Priority

I can't believe how sharp a hand held shot with a 105mm lens can be at 1/15 of a second exposure.

Some Boney Dude

Some boney guy is sitting on my front porch in my rocking chair. I'm going to need him to move on before Halloween.

Porch Framework

For the past couple of years I've put up a framework to that makes putting together my Halloween porch scenes much easier. The framework is made of simple 2" x 2" pine boards attached at the corners with metal bracing brackets and anchored on the bottom with angle brackets.

Rotten Realty

I'm sure my neighbors looked twice at the realty sign in front of my house.
