Weekly Photography Challenge - Spooky Images for Halloween

Weekly Photography Challenge – Spooky Images for Halloween

If you want to see some scary images head over to my earlier collection of spooky images here.

This is the week of all the spooks and goblins so I though it would be fitting to see some scary images too. What do you consider spooky or creepy? It might be a big hairy spider, or maybe a ghostly double image, or perhaps some deep shadows in a hidden alleyway. Whatever it is, it’s your turn to photograph it and show me something that will make me have the chills.

Let’s see some examples:

You get the idea. Now it’s your turn.

Weekly Photography Challenge – Spooky Images

Try and think about this one not so literally. I’ve done some photo competition judging and something similar was the theme for one category. I saw a lot of images trying too hard to be scary. Think subtle. We don’t need to see blood and guts to be scared. Less is more. A simple, dark, moody image of a creepy looking alley or lane-way could be all that’s needed. How about doing some double exposures at night using flash to create some ghosts, or just long exposures on a busy street to catch all the moving people at night. If you have some ideas share them here, then go shoot it and share the images too.

Share your spooky photos

Simply upload your shot into the comment field (look for the little camera icon in the Disqus comments section as pictured below) and they’ll get embedded for us all to see or if you’d prefer upload them to your favourite photo sharing site and leave the link to them. Show me your best images in this week’s challenge.

Here are a few more images to scare you!
