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.
May i know what shutter speed you used for this ? and did you use a tripod?
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.
Thanks so much for these tips! Helped me to solidify my idea for art practical project.
this is amazing
omg i am just like so spooked by how you scare people like that.
