Photographing Halloween

Posted: April 5, 2010 in Halloween

Halloween is a great time of the year to capture the spirit(s) with your camera.  It’s truly easy to turn trick night into memories but you should remember to use these few tips.  One of the most important item, is your subject.  Make sure that your subject is framed properly and anything distracting in the background is cropped out of the photo. 

For example, if you are trying to photograph a pumpkin, zoom in close to the pumpkin to show all the carving detail, get down on the ground for a different perspective of your subject, and always make sure that you crop out anything distracting in the background – but most important, turn off your flash!  Just use the light from the candle to illuminate your shot.  (even try adding more than one candle inside your pumpkin to brighten your photograph)  By turning off your flash, you will capture a true eerie feeling.  After you have taken a few photographs, you can also tweek them with PhotoShop or other photographic software to enhance your photo, by changing your photograph to all black & white, or by coloring certain areas of the photo.  The more creative you are, the better.  Creativity is the spice of capturing the spirit of Halloween.
