How To Make Halloween Selfies


There is nothing better at Halloween time than updating your profile pic with a Halloween selfie.  In this photo above I am peeking around the corner of a curtain with an element of terror. If you want to amplify the look, consider using a filter on Photoshop like "poster edge" or just up the contrast. I also took a pic of a Halloween mask on a piece of black fabric and cut and pasted it to my eye's iris so you could see what I am screaming at.

A gothic mood involves a black background, some candelight, gauzy ghost, slightly lit figure behind you....

Consider making everything black so that your flesh is the only thing that pops out in the photo - 

Try moving the camera back and forth fast as you take the pic so you blur out - 

Take on the look and attitude of your subject - 

Interact with a background - art piece, object, or even a character on a large screen TV -

Don't be afraid to be unrecognizable - 

Live a fantasy - 

Never underestimate a black hooded cape 

You can never go wrong with a good shadow pic, choose the latest afternoon sunlight to exaggerate - 

Be sure to take it in a spooky place like an abandoned building, cemetery, forest, corn maze - 

In this picture (above) I put a Michael Myers mask on the ground and lined myself up.

Simple but effective scarecrow pose in silhouette.

Set up Halloween props to pose with - 

Hit your local Spirit Halloween or Home Depot and pose. Interact with statues. Cast a shadow into a doorway of an abandoned scary site. 

Here's some things to help give you the best pics -
