    Beautiful shots. I can't comment on the technical aspects as I know nothing of photography, but I do know beautiful images when I see them

    @ scathe
    I left the shutter open for about 2.5 seconds, and fired a flash at the start.. so the bright flash took care of imprinting my girlfriend in the picture, then she darted out of the frame, which left the whisp like trail because it was still 'recording' would have looked better if she had moved out of the frame slower, but I still like the image Obviously when she moved out of the way of the backdrop, that was able to make an imprint on the sensor. Sorry if I havent explained myself very well.

    That is a technique called ghosting, for those who care.

    Nice camera- the images look great! I presume you did not use a stock lens?

    You would infact be right in assuming that.. I used an Ultra Wide Angle 10-22mm Canon Lens. Fortunately one of the directors at work is into photography quite a bit, so he lets me use his gear . Id love to buy one of my own, but its gonna set me back around ú500, more than the camera is worth.. Eventually I wouldnt mind a 5D MkII aswell

    Dont want much do I..

    And scathe I was wondering myself if I did it with 2 different images, whether I could get the same effect.. But I dont think it would have come out quite as nice as this.. I hate cutting people out in Photoshop.. I would have gone crazy when I tried to do the hair

    I could imagine how to do it, specially with the nice fadeout in the bottom (btw, I like this pic more and more everytime i come back here )

    selecting around hair is possible, it's a pain in the a** but if u play a bit with refine edge and masking, u can manage

    I'm really amazed at what you can do with just using your camera right

    The fadeout wasnt intended.. but because I used such a WA lens, and the flash was on top of the camera (obviously) so the camera body stopped the flash reaching her legs..

    Completely accidental, but I agree it looks awesome.
