Quick Camera Tip: CAPTURE GHOSTS

How to Capture Ghosts this Halloween

Creating exciting tricks is the central part of our Halloween tradition. Ghostly images are very entertaining, especially to impress kids. 


Simple Tip to Capture Ghost Pictures

Capturing Ghost images is simpler than you think. All you need is a camera, lens, and a tripod! Here is how to set things up:

  • For the best result, the ambient light should not be too bright. So, Overcast, early morning or late afternoon are the best timings.
  • We need to use a slow shutter speed. You can use shutter priority or fully manual. 
  • Set the shutter speed to 1 second or longer. If using shutter priority, your camera will set the aperture automatically. If shooting in manual, make sure to adjust the exposure correctly.
  • Set the camera on a tripod, prefocus, and release the shutter.
  • Then ask your model to walk into the frame, or you can walk into the frame. 

That is all there is to it! Now, you have a ghost presence in photos!


I used the same setup to capture these images.

Omnilargess Photography workshops focus on many hidden features in digital cameras and editing software, such as Lightroom and Photoshop.

Using the shutter speed effectively is so manageable. Photography Bootcamp Program covers many more artistic skills.
Our next Bootcamp starts on February 3, 2022. It is a six-week program and includes two field trips.
