Halloween Photography Tips

Add Colored Cellophane to Your Flash For Spooky Effects

Halloween is only days away, and if you haven't already picked out your costume and carved your geeky pumpkin then I suggest you get on it! Halloween is the perfect time to take some great candid and group photos of your dressed-up pals, but if you want to add a bit more "flare" to your shots, try this tip I found on Digital Photography School online: Attach colored cellophane to your camera's flash to add a cool effect to your photos, similar to the kind you'd get on a Lomo Colorsplash Camera!



No need to rush out and buy expensive colored gels from your closest camera shop, just pick up some colored cellophane from an art supply store (I like red or orange for Halloween, of course) and tape it over your flash. It will add a spooky glow to your shots, as well as diffuse the bright flash that might otherwise be too bright for your nighttime shots.
