Elisha said I pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me.

2 Kings 2:9

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a self- portrait double exposure print that I scanned and shot in 1997 with my Nikon FE2 film camera...I remind myself of two ghost spirits...I merged right in with the background...

I have been going though some old pictures today in my albums and I came across this print that I had completely forgotten about...I remember doing some self portraits during that time period and experimenting with them after I bought my used Nikon FE2 camera that year..

That camera allowed me to do some creative fun things and this was one of them...This of course was before digital and photo shop. The Nikon FE2 camera was on another tripod and I remember it was challenging to do this shot...I set it up to look like I was taking a picture of myself with an old time camera and I was surprised at the results...

    This is really good, hard to believe this isn't photoshopped! I can only imagine how difficult this must have been.

  • Andrea Petersen

    Andrea Petersen said (15 Nov 2010):

    Thank you everyone for your kind words...At the time I experimented with this,
    I had no idea that the double exposure would merge me into the background like two ghost spirits..and I really don't know how that happened but I am
    glad it did.
