Your Monday Photo Shoot: Mood Lighting


"If you're photographing in color you show the color of their clothes, if you use black and white, you will show the color of their soul."

-Unknown

Your Monday Photo Shoot: Make a moody picture. By which you can use mood lighting of some sort, or possibly arty black-and-white, or whatever you need to in order to give the shot that certain moodiness. It's hard to describe, but you'll know when you see it, I'm sure.

-John Scalzi (By The Way)

Yep, John was right, I did know it when I saw it. I hope it's acceptable to dwell a bit on Halloween, but you see, I love that day so much. I start photographing the minute I get up, and usually keep going well into the night, as the subjects present themselves. :) I took this photo of Mr. David Duchovny Pumpkin, 2007, in black and white, because it was an overcast day, and I was going for exactly the kind of moodiness that John is talking about. It's cool that I have a good excuse to show him off. :) Did you notice that Mr. D.D. Pumpkin's eyes are D's? Tee Hee.

Great design on both the shot and the pumpkin!

Ack! I can't see the picture. I've tried two browsers. Perhaps it's a Blogger hiccup. I'll try again later.

Nothing left to do now but rot.
