The Darkroom

Spooky, but not too scary: Behind the scenes of our Halloween photo shoot

The Baltimore Sun

For the Halloween Wknd section, I photographed actors from Field of Screams Maryland in the studio. The goal was to make it spooky, but not too scary for publication.

The setup:

  • Black paper was secured to the wall to create a dark backdrop.
  • A main light with a small white umbrella was placed in front and below the face of the subject.
  • The secondary light was covered with an orange gel and placed behind the subject. It was directed into the fog.
  • A small fog machine helped create the spooky atmosphere

Look through the gallery below for some behind-the-scenes photos.
