Halloween photography and art
I’ve been photographing graveyards and Gothic churches for Halloween to get spooky pictures, but this one isn’t at all spooky and one of the better ones. I used the ‘cali’ 8 border in PhotoScape and gave it a vintage look with colorize.
This is a really spooky picture. You should show some respect when you take photos in graveyards, stay away from the newer graves. Even older graves might still be visited by relatives, so use some common-sense.
It’s quite spooky under this bridge as the cars go over the top. Each vehicle makes a strange thump as it passes by. I got a better effect with this shot by using the flash. I edited out some graffiti.
Can you spot the ghostly figure in this picture? There are 2 ways to do this. You can take 2 identical photos (use a tripod) one with a figure in the picture and one without. Then use PhotoScape to overlay the one with the figure in it over the one without the figure, making it semi transparent. I used one photo. I edited out the figure and saved the picture and then overlaid the one with the figure over the one without. You really need your figure closer and dressed in something reflective like white. Then you can use your flash to highlight the figure and make it look spooky.
This is another version of that first picture with a different border. If I was submitting to an exhibition this would be a picture I would definitely consider. I am having a picture enlarged and printed, I think this one would be worth printing too. What do you think? Which picture do you like best this week. You can see more spooky Halloween pictures over on a Zillion Ideas this week. Please pop over and take a look at those too. You can also follow me on Twitter for updates.
