Vintage Halloween

"I was born on the night of Samhain, when the barrier between the wolds is whisper-thin and when magic, old magic, sings it's heady and sweet song to anyone who cares to hear it."

~Carolyn MacCullough, Once A Witch

I am a big fan of vintage greeting cards. I love the old fashioned artwork and the quaint styling, so this year I decided to have a little fun making my own. When I can I like to base my photography on my own impression of what I am seeing through the lens, not necessarily exactly how the scene realistically appears. I don't do it often, but when I find a scene that reminds me of a favorite painting, I apply extra lighting or perhaps do a simple adjustment of the contrast. 
Mostly I do it with natural scenes, but the other day, while photographing some cute little Halloween figurines, it occurred to me that I could probably create some vintage styled Halloween cards inspired by those wonderful vintage cards from days gone by!
Tell me what you think!
