How could we resist when it’s just around the corner? This week’s prompt (surprise, surprise) is #halloween.
There is SO much out there to photograph for this prompt – from the pumpkin patches to the piles and piles of candy not to mention the main events on All Hallow’s Eve itself! Buahahahahaha! Whether you’re in it for the costumes or the candy, or the sheer joy of celebrating the end of the harvest season – show us your #halloween. There are plenty of flashy moments to anticipate – like carving the pumpkin to make a spooky jack o’lantern and going trick or treating through the neighborhood all dressed up in costume. But this is also a great opportunity to snap a group shot of family and friends as you gather to celebrate throughout this season. Take the time to look for the quieter moments too – the kiddos finally falling asleep amidst their plunder or grandma snarling with the fake teeth… stand still, look around and think about what story you’re telling and then get it!
Try shooting at night or in a dark room, using the bulb function on your DSLR camera or download a long exposure app for your phone (like slow shutter cam for example). This is great for capturing low lighting situations such as candles flickering in the pumpkins, neon lanterns illuminating faces or just plain fun light painting. For light painting inspiration check out this amazing commercial. It was filmed in one night using light painting techniques.
Tell a story with color using Halloween candy corn as your muse and capture all things white one day, then yellow the next and end with orange. As you can see, the possibilities are plentiful.
