Dont blink this Halloween
Mercys has a great costume this year
Halloween (Samhain) is always a big thing in our home.
We go all out, decorating the hall and door, buying in sweets for weeks previously, making 'eyeballs' out of lychees and strawberry laces, carving pumpkins etc, and the girls always dress up.
This year Mercy told me WELL in advance of her ideas for dressing up, and I spent the following weeks putting together bits and pieces and using up a LOT of grey and stone paint..
We did a trial run of her outfit so I coud get a few shots, using one light with barn doors and with Mercy against the wall of the dining room..
A LOT of dodge, burn, smudge and clone..and overlaying layers for the composite later and the images of Mercy were done..
(They are also in my gallery but I have popped them in a blog as I am going to try to overhaul to gallery soon)
Later tonight I will get a few images of the older girls(who are getting a bit too old to go as all out as Mercys likes too) and add them to this blog..
