Check out the slideshow. It is about halfway down on the right hand side.

Is anybody (besides me) currently using digital cameras to create these kinds of effects in real-time for presentations or shows?

Hey guys,

Thanks for the link Sensei, I've been curious about the show and hope to check it out soon.

Now that this topic has been brought up, does anyone know of a good b & w or sepia picture of a priest, somewhere on line? I'd love to have a picture for my Don Bosco seance.

What would Wavy do?

I have been lurking lately - and magic is keeping me too busy to type much. I have been putting in three days a week at the magic shop, performing on the weekends and practicing whenever my day job boss is not looking. Then there has been the Tarot reading business, martial arts, and that darn relationship gets in the way. Plus I am opening up for Bill Malone this weekend, and that extra practice is another stress on my work/play load. At the end of the day I am too pooped to pontificate on the finer points of magic via the net.

Speaking of the slide show, I wonder what that band of energy is between that ladies hand. Pretty cool stuff. Any ideas?

Anyone who has developed black and white film and made prints from negatives sees lots of stuff like that, but it is usually thrown out with the trash as a "mistake." The medium probably got to the "faulty" print, recognized it as a good thing and kept the photographer or processor from tossing it away, or it could have even been doctored by the processor by one of several methods. It is not "light" you are seeing, but the absence of black pigment in that part of the photo which allows the natural white of the photo paper to appear to be light.

Using a digital camera and any graphics program on the software market, you can create such effects easily.

Those photos are delightful!

If you need to make a sepiatone, it is very simple in Photoshop. Start with a color or black and white photo, turn it into a grayscale image, then turn it back to "color" (either RGB or CMYK). Adjust the brightness and contrast until you are pleased with it, then in the Adjustments menu click "More Red" once and "More Yellow" once. You now have a sepiatone. Happy Haunting!

Yours,

Paul

Those photo's are cool, but the narrator was a little on the arrogant side. I would like to see the whole collection.

In the slideshow, I would have used some scary "thermin" like sounds in the background and narrated the whole thing with echo (word for word).

I'm using Photoshop v8. This version includes a sepia photo filter; very effective.

I love old Victorian photos; I am working on a routine with a girl and a doll photo I have(with photoshopped in Grandfather clock for a time prediction)
