How could I *not* do something in honor of one of my favorite holidays?
I used to work at the Texas Renaissance Festival, and while working there, I purchased this totally cool handmade leather witch hat that I only get to wear once a year (along with the jack-o-lantern shirt). The light strand is one of several that my sister gave to me; it’s been adorning one of my bookcases in the living room as the strand make a great nightlight.
So I set up the camera and 85mm lens on a tripod. I turned off all the lights. I used a small flashlight that I held below and to the side of me to give my face a little light with some deep shadows. My wireless remote captured all of this. The finishing touches to the photo were some vignetting and the text (in “Chiller” font).
Happy Halloween, Everybody!
