I was shooting a nighttime event for my school's paper today and noticed a very interesting thing in one of the photos.

Look at the lower right at the red spot. It looks like a person's face, no?

Does anyone have a clue what that is and what caused it?

Yeah, it's pretty obvious. It *is* a person's face, and it was exposed by the AF-assist light on that little camera the guy is holding, just to the right of the "artifact".

No problem. I just wanted to prevent yet another "Unsolved Mysteries" TV special... :biggrin:
