photoblog image Stoned Halloween Pumpkin

Stoned Halloween Pumpkin


I also wanted to make a Halloween image. Here it is, my pumpkin at home.


TECH-INFO: This one is made in Strobist style. For the front lighting is used a speedlight flash at left of camera behind me, pointed to the ceiling for diffuse light. The inside is lit using a small candle. Because the candle was visible on the picture, I took two shots. Between the shots I moved the candle. Afterwards in Photoshop I combined the two images in order to erase the little candles.
For the background I used a black sheet. Using the color selective tool I made the black almost pure.

Well done - I like your idea of moving the candle between two shots to get a candle-less shot smile Good thinking!
