Active Assignment for the week of 16th - 23rd Nov.: Ghost Stories
November always has, at least for me, had some otherwordly quality. It is the month starting with the celebration of the ghostly, with Halloween. It is close to the end of the year, the days become shorter, it is cold, rainy, gloomy; just the right time to sit around the fireplace and tell ghost stories, which will be next week's theme.
Ghosts, monsters and creatures are lurking in the mists and the shadows. So, why not catch them with the camera? I mean not only actual ghosts but also eerie moods, dark chilly corners, the creepy, the monster under your bed - be creative!
WIT: I had my daughter strike up some poses while wearing a body sock. The sock is bright green and is made of stretchy Lycra material. The initial shot had a built-in vignette from the incoming window light. I converted to b&w and added a bit more vignette using Nik Silver Efex.
