Halloween Shoot, 2013

For the past couple of years I've been doing themed photo shoots with my children for Halloween.  I try to raise the bar every year, and outdo the previous year.  This year's theme came to me one night while I was trying to fall asleep. My vision had my oldest daughter, Halie, as a witch holding a crystal ball.  Inside the crystal ball would be my other children, all in their Halloween costumes.  I was going for a "trapped inside by their sister and can't go trick or treating" feel.  I am pleased with how my vision came to life--it was exactly how I wanted it to turn out.

The picture is a composite of three pictures.  The main one being Halie (the witch), a candy dish as the crystal ball, and a group shot of the five kids.  This was all done in my studio on a black and white background.  Taking the photos was the easy part--the post processing not so much.  It took almost eight hours to complete.  Anyway,  I hope you enjoy the photo as much as I do.  Until next year!
