Capturing scary images is a breeze. These images were clicked a long time back, and while cleaning my catalog, I came across them.

Here is how they were clicked

 

1. Environment: Night, pitch black environment.

 

2. Lighting: A non flooding source of light like a small torch (the ones that come on a cigarette lighter are the best)

 

3. Setup: Light source to be positioned below the face, in such a way that it also casts lots of shadows.

 

4. Camera: Increased ISO, open aperture, as slow as possible shutter speed.

 

5, Expressions: Ideally grim. Don’t try something too fancy, simple serious ones are the best.

 

Thanks to Simi, Neha and Saket for allowing me to post  their scary images.

  1. For low light photography you need to keep your ISO high, your aperture as wide open and your exposure as long as possible. For a 50mm lens without tripod you should do 1/50 sec. Tripod is useful but not practical for general usage.
