Long exposure. I can't remember the exact details, as I've been messing around with lots of motion stuff for my next book. For some pictures like this, I'd manually fire a weak flash just to help freeze a pose in the motion, but I believe this was flash-less. I *think* Shan started upright, smoothly moved back, then held the laying down pose. She might have done it in reverse -- Shan is in awesome shape, so it could be either :)

Daily Deviation

Given 2007-02-16
I love the use of long exposure play in photography. You can get so many fascinating results as you can see here in Shan, ghost by ~AlexWilson ( Featured by Teeslpscreations )

Thats absolutely gorgeous, taking abstract human form into a different level. I love contrast of the soft long exposure part and the finest detail in the hands. Beautifull pose.
