I am new to this forum - and new to photography.
I have the alpha 6000 with the standrad objective mounted right now and want to make some photos using the self-timer in manual mode. I want something with about 8 seconds aperture time.
Thus, I switch the camera to manual mode (M) and clik on the left of the wheel. Unfortunately, a massage shows up, that this function is not available rigt now.
If I anyway mount the cam on a stativ and press the trigger, the cam takes altogether 4 (?) pictures (looong breack (severeal seconds in between)), that are processed afterwards.
HDR is not activated (if I understand this correctly).
So, what happend is: I triggered the photo and moved into the scene. At the photo later, i was visible as a "ghost" - so a bit transparent.
I did not expected this and initialy did not want this, but I really like the effect - and want to reproduce it now... But as I am totally confused, I dont really know how I did this, and how I can reproduce it.
Maybe it is even possible to have several "ghosts-mes" in the picture. (I.e. me in different positions?) How would I do this?
I am not sure, but maybe the effect came, because i have 8 seconds apperture and moved during this time in the picture? Or did it happen becuase I do have some HDR stuff active (although I dont think so) and I moved in the scene between two of those HDR frames?
Sorry, I am really a bit confused and dont have much time to get this ready. I hope someone can give me a hint?
The first thing to know is maybe, why I cant activate the self-timer...
All the best
