Try these Halloween photo tips with your yearbook

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Halloween can be one of the most photogenic times of the year, what with people dressing in costume and putting up interesting (sometimes wild) decorations.

Take a look at this post from the website digital-photography-school.com for some tips specific to taking pictures on Halloween.

Among the highlights:

  • There are always flashy moments on Halloween but don’t forget the small details, like people carving pumpkins and getting into their costumes.
  • People are often in groups on Halloween, so try for good candid, group shots.
  • When you think Halloween, you think spooky and you think dark, which means taking photos in low light – take a look at Digital Photography School’s post for techniques.

Perhaps there are some hints in there you can use to create some great Halloween-related images for your yearbook.
