Ectoplasmic Portrait

The first image is what I consider to be a pictorialist portrait in which was echos the time of the 1800's when photographers tried to go for a soft look and long exposure. It is suppose to emulate that raw feeling and early documentary quality.

The second photograph is what I consider to be my ectoplasmic portrait of a lady named Raquel. It is most resembled to spirit photography that took place in the 1860's. My technique was non digital using a holga camera that delivered me this double exposed image, and light leaks that happened through mistakes. I tried to go for the ghost coming through the window aesthetic.
