    Since this is my 1000th post I thought I would share my other hobby, and another reason I wanted to get into photography. I do a large Halloween haunt at my house every year, and capturing pics was really hard, since it was so dark.
    I can not remember the settings on these shots, but this year, I will pay more attention to them.
    I scratch build everything, and if I do need a store bought item , I will usually convert it, and give it a "real " look.


    See, I always had a crow on a gravestone, but just not the real thing :lol: :lol:

    This is my "demon" that is about 8' tall and stands on the roof.

    My "minister" who stands at the front of the cemetery.

    [​IMG]

    This is the tallest gravestone in my cemetery. It stands almost 9' tall, and is made mostly from styrofoam. I did this pic using a "painting with light" technique.

    "Alice" is my mourning lady. She is full size and is just a static prop. I hope to animate her hands soom.

    My first animatronic prop. Samara from The Ring. She rises and falls into the well, by using a motor and some small arms. I tried to add some noise to this photo to give it that cheap TV look.

    Wow Chiller, the pictures are cool, but the props are flat out wicked! (Hey, I make a big graveyard in my front yard too. I normally have at least a few kids afraid to walk up to my door. Too much fun!!!!!)

    Thanks all for the replies. There is nothing like scaring the pants off somebody at halloween. I find the adults scare better then the kids. :lol: :fangs: :lol:
    Aprilraven... The moon is real. It was out 2 days before halloween, so I took advantage of it. It was not quite full yet, but did the job.
    I get some kids that wont come up to the house, but most are really good sports. We wont scare the little ones though. So you look like Alice?

    elsaspet...Do you do all your own props? Glad to see your a haunter too.
    Core17. I think it is only about a 7 hour drive to Toronto from Illinois :lol:

    I am an absolute chicken and scare at my own shadow so I will be happy to stay right here for Halloween. However, great job on the props and photos... impressive!

    Believe it or not, I use to be a part of those haunted houses back in college. Now, I can't even look in the mirror without scaring myself... :lol:
