These pictures are based on a set I did for a Hallowe’en event in my home town. We wanted a ‘rogues’ gallery’ to put round the walls, so I photographed a friend wearing a succession of Hallowe’en masks.
The pictures we used were basic colour shots, but I wanted to go a bit further and do some more processing to give them a creepier feel. I did this by converting them to black and white and adding textures to give a sort of antique feel. Combined with a rough border, I think this is quite effective.
Maybe they’re not ‘real’ portraits, but I enjoyed making them, and I think they’re quite fun.
