Take sp👀ktastic Halloween photos with our top tips

Learn how to take creepily cool Halloween photos with our four frightening top tips.

🎃 Uncluttered shots!

Get in close and focus on one aspect of a costume-in this case, the makeup. Whether photographing costumes, decorations, parties, pick the most important facet and zero in on it by moving in close. By doing this, you’ll avoid a common photography error: cluttered pictures with no discernible subject or not enough detail.

🎃 Add extra light inside pumpkins

To take pumpkin pictures that really shine, you need to let the light through-and add extra lighting for real impact. Try these tips:

  • Cut extra-large openings for eyes and big, jagged smiles.
  • Use two or three candles inside the pumpkin. Or, place a torch in the pumpkin.

🎃 Take photos at twilight

Twilight is an ideal time to take pictures because the remaining light in the sky is very dramatic. During twilight, we suggest using a tripod or a fill flash.

Your camera’s automatic flash will come on at night, but for better results, turn it off and use a torch to illuminate spooky subjects from the side or below. Also, use the Night Portrait setting on your camera, which uses flash and a long exposure. To avoid blurry results, use a tripod.

🎃 Action shots

If you’re welcoming children to your door, work with someone else. Have one person open the door and greet the kids while the other snaps away. When taking your kids trick-or-treating, position yourself so that you can photograph them as they receive treats.
