Zombie Des in front of my house :
After seeing that piccy in the light of the flash, I decided that I need more brown and black paint to make it more dirty and realistic. It looks totally awesome at night, in the dark; but with full flash you don't see all the heavy bloodstains and so on. I have other piccys of my haunt, but they just don't look right. I may have to break down and hire a professional photographer to film it properly.
Like the "How the heck do I take good pictures of my haunt" thread I've seen here before. I guess I just need to play around with my camera more and experiment.
Any haunted house looks lame in a picture with all the bright lights on.
It's the darkness and lighting that makes it cool. And it doesn't help that my house is located on one of the busiest streets in town, right under a bright street light (That I have secretly thought of shooting out Oct.31st. with a BB gun. )
Ya gotta have that true creepy:
But overall, my fave photo has to be this, and is totally non Halloween. I was at a Con in Gatlinburg, and this sweet 'lil guy would not leave until he gave me a hug, and cried and cried when his momma took him away from us. He had total love for the Empire. A true Bawwww...moment. His momma was fussin' at him, "C'mon, we gotta go..." and he looked up at me with wet eyes, and held up his 'lil arms to me, and I just had to.
Totally broke my heart... Even my wife teared up.... (she was the one that took that piccy.) These are the few moments that make life worthwhile. And why we do this. Halloween is no different.
