Rhode Island has AS220’s Paul Krot Community Darkrooms for all their community darkroom needs. In the spirit of Halloween, they’re holding a portrait event where you can pose with a ghost of your choice.

Anyway, AS220 is giving you, oh scaredy-cats, a chance to take home a picture of yourself with a ghost, and learn how to take your own spirit pictures. Fun!
