Haloween Photography Tips Part II


More Haloween Photography Tips

Previously, I discussed a few Haloween Photography Tips. In this article, I am going to cover the camera settings, which are more related to Haloween Photography.

Light and Colours

In the previous article, I explained that for Haloween photographs, I like them a little underexposed and moody. Therefore, by tweaking the exposure, you can create those moody pictures. 

However, another part of having scary images is about colours. Generally speaking, the warmer tones, such as yellow and orange, create a friendly and cozy feeling. On the other hand, blue, green and cyan generate a kind of scary and harsh environment feeling. 

Having said that, by manipulating the White Balance, you can bring the desired colour cast to the photos. As a rule of thumbs, when shooting under artificial light, by switching to Daylight white balance, you can achieve a spooky blue colour cast. 

I strongly suggest using all different white balance presets to see which one matches your style best. Below are two photos with different white balance settings:[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”23565″ img_size=”600×600″ add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” onclick=”link_image” css_animation=”fadeIn” title=”Haloween Photography Tips”][vc_single_image image=”23566″ img_size=”600×600″ add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” onclick=”link_image” css_animation=”fadeIn” title=”Haloween Photography Tips”][vc_column_text]

Capture the Ghost of Haloween

Who doesn’t want to have those weird images of the Haloween ghost? It is always fun to create some excitement by showing the picture of a ghost to your friends and family. Here is my final Haloween Photography Tip for you.

By using slow shutter speed, all moving items in the frame will be blurry. The slower the shutter speed gets, the more blurry the subjects get. Here is an example:[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”23567″ img_size=”600×600″ add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” onclick=”link_image” css_animation=”fadeIn” title=”Haloween Photography Tips”][vc_column_text]To achieve this effect, you need to keep the camera as stable as possible. Therefore, using a tripod or a platform to stabilizing the camera is a must.
You can be even more creative by combining slow shutter speed and a flashlight to capture mysterious photographs. Here is an example:
