October is here, the leaves are changing and Halloween is right around the corner. Now is the time to get out that old bin of creepy decorations and figure out what you’re going to be for the best holiday of the year. Lucky enough for me a lot of the people I work with have no shortage of costumes and ideas that they want to play with.
Batmanda and I had already talked about a Wednesday Adams shoot months back so we finally got that together but she recently posted a piece of cover art to inspire another shoot. I tend to shoot very fast. Shoots once they get going don’t last much longer than and hour so I don’t mind doubling up concepts especially when I can get them done at locations near each other.
The Devil theme was the shoot we did in a studio setting. I kept it super simple with natural light coming in through a window and a white wall as a basic background. There is rarely any need to go over the top when it comes to shoots. you can get amazing results.
For Wednesday Adams we went down the road to the bosque where we could pull off some more on location type stuff. Trying to get the tone of the photos was more of a matter of editing. Toning down the saturation to make it fit the character.
I love October in the what it offers aesthetically and I hope I get the opportunity to do more shoots this month.
