October…. october 31, twenty 11.

You may – or may not – recall a few months ago….well, a lot of months ago…a group of friends, that were originally all in Lubbock, tried this “long-distance” photo adveture thing. We basically picked a topic, took a picture that best represented that topic through the photographer’s eye, then posted them online.

Well….that didn’t last longer than a few months; I believe we did a total of 5 topics.

We were thinking of way to revive this adventure because 1) it got all of us thinking behind the camera and 2) it was fun to re-connect with old friends and relive those random adventures we used to have together in Lubbock.

It just happen to work out that October, November and December all have big holidays, along with a bunch of unknown or bizarre holidays. So, the topics for the next three months were decided….holidays. You can read more about the “restart” of this adventure here.

For the month of October I really wanted to pick an off-the-wall holiday. I then shot some photos for work and thought about using those…but I was pretty sure I would gross out and offend a lot of people. Then I got lazy and just figured I’d end up photographing a bowl of candy corn for Halloween.

Luckily, a group of photographers I work with had an idea for a Halloween shoot….a portrait shoot in a cemetery. We went out this past Friday, had a couple of people dressed up, and went to town – photographically speaking of course.

People were running around, flashes were going off left and right, there may have been a zombie spotting, some floating orbs, and we even photographed some kids riding around on bikes!

I’ll have another post later today with more images from this shoot; but for now, here is the photograph I chose to submit for the “October Holiday”…and yes, it is for Halloween…

Shot with Canon 5DMK2 and 35 1.4L lens.

ISO 3200, 35mm, f1.4 @ 1/25 sec. Edited with Adobe Lightroom 2.7.
