How to create a Ghost Effect with iPhone Photography.
This Friday I followed my principle to walk the extra mile and wait an extra minute. I took an almost two hour walk from where I work back to my apartment with the iPhone ready to snap. I photographed a small bridge over railway tracks and then some trains when I got this photo.
I used Slow Shutter Cam [iTunes App Store Link] to photograph a one-second long exposure of the trains passing by under the bridge. It took me a few attempts to get the timing right. After I had edited the blur right in Slow Shutter Cam to add the ghost effect to the photo, I added the front train lights with Lenslight App [iTunes App Store Link] and converted to photo to black and white with the new editing functions of iOS8. Here’s a full tutorial.
