From last night's Haloween in our compound! My step-daughter's boyfriend made up as a vampire... I think some of the little kiddies around the area got a fright!!!

RAW, lit by one softbox to right and that is it! Well, a crop from the original...

Hi David...
I dont like vampire :-) but this portrait is very good...
Nice presentation...

Hi David. I am not surprised that they were frightened. You have captured the elements of their terror quite in detail here. As usual your management of light is brilliant.

Hi David,
Very well arranged shot with nice balanced framing and good diffused lighting plus superb sharpness.
My Best Wishes

Hi David,

Great picture with lots of detail. With such an expression I can imagine some people are afraid of vampires. TFS

Kind regards,


I think you need to think seriously about allowing this person into your family, David!!

Seriously, he is very well captured, with all his horrific details sharp and terrifying!
There is a very well used contrast between the pale skin and the dark b/g.
For me, the crop is exact!

My warmest regards,
Bev :-)
What has he got in his eyes?
