70 Examples of Phantom Photography

From Eerie Editorials to Gorgeously Ghostly Fashion

— September 25, 2012 — Fashion
Every year around October, people embrace the idea of being scared, and these frightful photo shoots are full of Halloween images to chill your bones. Even when Halloween isn't just around the corner, macabre enthusiasts still enjoy seeing depictions of disturbing dead spirits that pierce your soul with ethereal garments and undying eyes.

Fashion photographers give their pictures a haunting quality by blurring images with a slow shutter speed or adding ghostly effects like vapour trails in post production. The resulting phantasmal imagery, although quite unsettling, will grip your attention like the cold, dead hands of the grim reaper clasped around your throat. Take caution if you choose to proceed -- if you’re easily spooked then these eerie portraits might haunt your dreams.
