    This is from a local shoot I did yesterday at the beautiful cemetery just down the road from me - Bluff City Cemetery in Elgin, IL.


    1. In the very back far corner of the cemetery they keep these casket-holder cement boxes. It was very, very eerie.

    3. There were gravediggers preparing graves nearby. Also kinda eerie. The color accent was done in-camera.

    4. They left the top of the casket holder just right there by the grave. The red color switch was done in-camera.

    I like the 4th one but would like to see it in B&W.

    Reminds me of an old movie. Ya know the photographer shoots the lid only to see his name on it.

    Thanks for the comment! It made me laugh - I totally understand what you mean. How eerie would that have been!?! ;)

    I whipped this up fast when you suggested it... what do you think?

    (as for the second shot) are those vaults waiting for us? They look like a labrynth.

    The shot that you turned red is awesome! Perfectly done with the chains being red too. Great job.

    Thanks so much! I think the red chains was what put that over the top for me as a favorite. It's a very cool camera feature. Thank you!

    Uh wait a minute.....camera feature? You did that with the camera? I thought it was photoshopped afterwards. Wow! And yes, the red chains is what did it.
    I have a book about the beauty of death and that photo sure does belong in it.
