The Imagecraft Bootcamp challenge this week was to make a creepy Halloween image. I tried to follow the host’s general guidelines for image changes using my camera+ app. I cropped a simple picture and rotated it so that the perspective was more unsettling. I desaturated the picture to black and white. I decreased the exposure and increased the contrast to make it seem more like night. Then, I increased the grain and clarity to make it seem grittier. The final touch was adding a blue filter which added a creepy glow.
I think it looks like a crypt coming up out of the ground. Spooky and eerie….
If you flip the image, you may be able to see that it is actually just a old porch stoop. Here it is compared to the original image:
Beware of your eyes playing tricks on you today! Have a safe and happy Halloween!
It’s October and the Country Market is gearing up for Halloween. Pumpkins are waiting to be carved into Jack-o-lanterns. Frankenstein and Count Dracula are hovering over produce.
A haunted house, with do not enter warnings, is being set up for brave greenhouse visitors looking for a scare. I imagine the scares will be gentle but I don’t intend to find out. Unless I am a character in the haunted house, they are not for me!
This is my tenth installment for Cardinal Guzman’s Monthly Photo Challenge. We are to post 5-20 pictures each month at a nearby location to showcase the changing of seasons and hone our photography skills. You should check out his photos and the links that he posts to other entries you may also enjoy viewing. You can see my previous galleries by clicking on the Changing Seasons header at the top of this page.
