From Photography

Waiting at the Gate

I have only done specifically creepy shots for Halloween a small number of times. I’m not good with the deadlines the surround holiday-themed photography because I can’t get in the mood until we’re right up on the holiday and then there’s no way in hell I’m going to be able to edit in time for the photos not to be all sad and pathetic and late, so often it just doesn’t happen.

(and creating divides)

The first voyage outside of the studio with the infamous circle, and my first meet & greet in over 9 years. I wasn’t sure how this was going to go, but I ended up coming away with at least one shot that I really dug.

This silver dog sits on the bar of the Racine VFW.
