Top stuff. If people ask if it's a difficult shot to do, you have to say yes. Keep the mystery.

Very clever. It looks like whatever has flown through the shot has lifted the cards into the air.

I like this image a lot ... nice to see something diferent.
It reminds me of my LSD days in a dark room with a fag or torch. Boy were those the days!

Hi Ricky

Stand the cards up with blu tac, set a very slow shutter speed, on aprox F10, manually focus on the first card, turn the light off, press the shutter and draw around the cards with a pencil torch. You can do it a few times and use layers, but this was just one shot.
