Geek Tip: Take Great Halloween Pics

Taking great Halloween pictures may be easier than you think. Sure, you have to worry about lighting, making fake blood look real and hiding the fact that the kids can see through your best friend's "nurse costume," but that doesn't mean you can't get great pictures. Digital Photography School has put together a great list of tips that are sure to turn any silly fool into a terrifying ghoul. My favorite tips include:

  • Candid Photos: Halloween parties and gatherings abide by the same photo principles as birthday parties. Make sure to play with light, choose fun angles and catch your subjects in unsuspecting moments.
  • Group Photos: Sure it's fun to remember what you or your kids dressed up as for Halloween, but it's even more fun to see what the whole trick or treating bunch dressed up as. Make sure to get kids (and kids at heart) to pose in funny arrangements and really express the character they are dressed up as.
  • Defuse Your Flash: According to the Digital Photography School, you should "defuse the flash on your camera with colored cellophane to try to lesson its impact upon your shot and also to give the light it produces a glow that might add to your shots - Red might be a good color to try."
