Ophelia Pretends to be a Ghostly Spectre

I fairly certain "Ghostly Spectre" is an oxymoron, but I am calling it a literary technique.

Anyhow, these pictures are solid proof that I have learned to make lemonade when life hands me a lemon. The specific lemon is my camera's incapability of taking a picture less than 3 seconds after I push the button. So one day, having been infected with a spirit of optimism, I got out the camera and, finding it near impossible to take a good picture, decided to take some silly ones.
This is me dissolving into flame like a comic book character. Oops, I just gave away my secret identity. Ah well.
Further along in stages of turning into a firebrand.


Here I am as a ghostly spectre.
Here I am in the act of immaterializing, which is a very tricky business to catch on camera.



I think I bear a resemblance to the evil queen's mirror in Snow White. I like how my head is floating off my shoulders, but I think that my blue shirt rather draws from the effect.





And I can't exactly recall what I was thinking at the moment this photo was snapped.




There you have it, folks: Ophelia actually, voluntarily taking pictures of herself! Never mind that she's pretending to be a ghostly spectre or that her head appears to floating above her neck...

Okay, now I know for sure that you're completely weird. That's fine though because weird is the new normal.

Hey Soph,

A question from the camera nerd: Are you shooting on Manual (M) or Auto (A or little green box)?
