WHO’S AFRAID OF GHOSTS?

Aaah, you are ready for some confusion, hearing..

..“don’t you bloody move while I’m fixing the next shot!”

 

Some of these are just “supposed ghosts”. They  appear when you use a single lens camera and someone “bloody moves” when you remove and prepare the camera for the second shot! During the printing process you can try and wipe out the moved figure, but it remains there. Like a ghost. 

 

 This is an example of such a single lens “stereo” camera. You can see the ingenious but simple system to move the camera a few inches between the first and second shot.

 

When both ghost figures are likely the same, this could mean a regular stereo camera was used but the plate was double exposed.
