    C/C Welcome. I was playing around with taking a spooky picture. I think this came out pretty good. My monitor is not calibrated and I am not sure if the picture came out too cool or too warm. Please c/c on any other technical info.

    Here are my settings:
    f3.5, SS 1/25, ISO 800, 46mm

    Clever aspect; I think it might have worked better with a different and unfocused background. The WB seems fine on my monitor.

    Thanks, do I need to close my AP more to achieve that DOF?

    With the background (door) so close to the subject it will be difficult to achieve the blur John described. Maybe with your 50mm at f/1.8. No harm trying. I also think a contrasting color would benefit you. Any chance to have one or both of the eyeballs looking at the camera? Or maybe tilt the head down slightly. Something about the position makes it look as if lying down rather than hanging around. Then in post, I would clone out the jaw rod. Pretty cool idea regardless.
