Note: Mods if this needs to be moved I was not sure where to post this.
So just about two weeks ago we had a SUPER MOON
! Being the photographer that I am I decided to get
out there and take what I hoped were some cool pictures! I had some great locations setup and had a great time snapping my photos away. Checking the
preview of the images I thought they were turning out splendidly, however much to my chagrin I was wrong...
I opened this one up and WOW WTF ALIENS!!! LITTLE GREEN SHIPS! AN INVASION FLEET! This is out of the camera not a PHOTOSHOP manipulation!
Of course that was my first thought, LOL imagine my horror when I finally discovered what I had done wrong!
Anyone notice anything wrong with this lens for night shooting? Neither did I when I started and I made a HUGE common
Now you see the error I made, I left on my filter from a previous shoot! I created A Ghost Alien Armada of Ships without even trying! Actually what I
created was a Lens Flare and Lens Reflections
. Notice even after taking off this lens, I can make
more alien ships!
Now back to the Alien fleet, we can actually see that they are reflections off of the capitol lights and that they are upside down. We can see with
the circled areas that one of our ships is missing in the Alien fleet formation just like the one of burned out lights off the building!
I was actually a little dismayed at these shots, but I instead took a failure on my part and decided to use it as a learning lesson for those less
familiar with cameras, on just how easy it is to make ghosts or aliens or whatever!
In closing, I made this thread to show anyone curious, that even someone familiar with a camera can make mistakes. I am not setting out to debunk
anything other than my own mistake and I actually do believe we may be visited by aliens or have government crafts that are to say the least have
technology completely unconventional and futuristic by today's standards.
Hope you enjoyed this thread and possibly learned something!
