HALLOWEEN PHOTOGRAPHY - CHILD VAMPIRE

MOON BATS
(Submission by Heather Friar). I have had the pleasure of working for Shadow’s Gate Charity Haunt in Leduc Alberta for a few years now as their principle photographer. They raise money for the local food bank. Last year we brought several of the characters into my home studio to get some “wicked” shots using strobes. Anyone who has seen my art will know that type of image is right up my alley. I love taking literary characters and bringing them to life and have been heavily influenced by Rembrandt and Film Noir type lighting.

Create And Unite Photography Project

logo
CREATE AND UNITE was borne out of the desire to encourage photographers,
both PPOC members and non-members, to keep up with their craft, or to provide inspiration for them to try something new, when they suddenly found themselves sidelined by the pandemic. As Canada ground to a halt, all nonessential busniess ceased - including photography sessions. This temporary closure of business challenged photographers to look to the confines of their homes in new and unique ways.
