Ghosts

by Luke Nelson 9/16/2020 For several months I had been seeing what other photographers could do with a slow shutter speed, and I wanted to try my hand at it. Then, one day, as I was scrolling through WordPress, I found a page by a photographer who was journaling her learning experience, and one ofContinue reading “Ghosts”

The Magazine Collection

Luke Nelson After seeing the “Vogue Challenge” circulate on social media, I wanted to try it out for myself.

By coincidence, the yellow shirt also created a cool reflection off theContinue reading “The Red Collection”
