Let's start of by explaining that this photo is not photoshopped or digitally not manipulated in any way. Yes, go back and read that one more time. No, I couldn't tell you exactly how it came to be, though I do understand it a bit. I was photographing a party (the same party this photo was taken) with my flash and I used a very long exposure (one or two seconds). In between, other strong lights came into the photo - either other people's flashes or the lighting from the club, I don't know. But this is what makes this photo look like a mash-up of different pictures - for every flash, the camera was in a different position and recorded something different. In the space of that second, it recorded everything you see above. Had I been using film, the photo would still have been very very similar. Žiga and I sometimes use these tricks on purpose - such as in this photo of me.
