Portraits of a Hatbox Ghost
On my most recent visit to the Haunted Mansion, I decided to grab my 70-200 f/2.8 telephoto lens and see what photos I could snap with it. Of particular interest was capturing more detailed shots of the Hatbox Ghost. I've taken wider angle overview shots of the character before, but I thought it would be fun to get a little closer and compose shots that more resemble portraits. "Hattie" is mysterious enough already, and these portraits emphasize his disembodied nature. The wide aperture of the lens also allowed me to get some pretty crisp exposures, so I hope you enjoy how these turned out!
