Spirit Photography at AS220

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. Spirit photography used to be something that actually happened–photographers exploiting their scientific skills and the public’s confusion about how photography actually worked.

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!
