    This was inspired by Pursuer's thread. Behind Door #1
    here>>> http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=38989
    I set this shot up in my basement. After putting a fog machine, and a white spotlight, behind the door, I left just enough room for the fog to escape. Not quite what I was going for, cause I want more "rays" of light to appear from the door, but now that my house is filled with fog, I will try again tomorrow. And the voices behind the door are a little angry:lmao: :lmao:

    Hey JonMikal..did you get a chance to try this?

    That gives a great effect. I would imagine with more rays showing it would look absolutely amazing!

    I like it :thumbup:
    *more light more light*

    I think more/brighter light would give it a little more scare factor.

    i had it all setup tonight...outside in the garage. used the van headlights and had Linda and the kids breathing from the opposite side for the fog effect....it's 10 degrees, i thought it was a good idea. after 30 mins of trying i noticed my fog had disappeared. i went to check it out and found them frozen. oh well, i'll round up some neighborhood kids tomorrow and try again :p

    i love this man! i'm thinking you may have something better than the ray idea. be that as it may, what do you think about closing the door to approximately 1/4 - 1/2 inch, load the back side up with light and inject the fog on the camera side for the ray effect?

    This is awesome!! Now that you guys have both tried it, I really want to! I don't have any cool doors tho. I will keep my eyes open in friends' houses and stuff.

    I agree, more light should do it, at least my brain thinks so. More light, looooong shutter, and then the fog wouldn't even be as necessary....although it makes it look ghosty and scary. Nice!!

    Excellent stuff. You'll have to do a silhouetted man in the doorway amidst the fog next!

    Thanks everyone for your comments. I appreciate it.
    woodsac. I am going to try 2, 150 watt bulbs next time. I only had a 100 watt in this shot.
    JonMikal. Gheesh.. I sure hope Linda and the kids are o.k. It took about 45 minutes for the fog to clear out of my house.:biglaugh: I was kinda digging it after a while.
    I was talking to my halloween bud, and he was saying that it might be hard to get the rays, cause there is not enough density in the fog. Usually when using a fog machine outside, you would need a cooler to cool the fog, as it is so hot, and would rise fast. I did this shot in my basement, and thought maybe the fog would not rise to fast. He suggested putting something to create "shadows" in front of the light, which might help enhance the rays.
    Soooo...back to the drawing board. Looking forward to your shots...and hope Linda and the kids are well. :lmao: :lmao:

    Rob...I was thinking of the sillouette also. Im only using a shutter of about 6 to 8 seconds...so I might try to walk across the front next time, and see if it will pick up a "ghost" image.

    Thanks again all.
