Spooktacular Tips For Your Halloween Photos

1

It’s that time of year, you are at the grocery store or your favorite craft or department store, and are surrounded by hanging spider webs, pumpkins and rows of Halloween costumes just waiting for a child to slip on and head down the candy collecting road.

If you are a parent of one of those candy collectors, Halloween season and Halloween night can get a little crazy. When all’s said and done, you might not even have any pictures to prove how cute your little goul or goblin was trick-or-treating.  Or that perfectly porportioned pumpkin the family spent hours carving.

By planning ahead with these spooktacular tips, you’re sure to have memories that will last longer than the halloween candy.

Details, details, details!

Capture the details of the costumes, pumpkin carving or how much candy they filled in their bags. Either way, the details are sometimes the first things we forget, capture it and fill that photo memory bank.

Get creative!

Have fun and shoot through a spider web, or add fog with a fog machine.  Photograph their smiles and laughter or get some action shots of them just being a kid on Halloween.
