My idea was to use a dark neutral density filter, and a tripod, and capture a full hour of dance movement in one photographic image.

It didn’t work.

Everything looked very ghosty and cloudy even at 7 minutes.

See below.

I found that one second to 5 seconds was a good time to work with.

It created nice streaks and wiggly limbs.

 When you move the tripod during the exposure you get this type of effect.
