Blood, boils, lipstick and latex.
Special effects make-up, prosthetics, theatrical costumery, expert lighting techniques and other out-of-the-ordinary pre-production and photographic techniques can help make a photograph into a memorable and terrifying masterpiece.  Whether you're creating unnatural skin-tones, using scary contact lenses, adding injuries and impalements to an otherwise undamaged body, or turning a model into a zombie or a werewolf, creating horror photography with special effects techniques takes a lot of skill, practice and patience (just as creating realistic horrific photomanipulations does).
As Hallowe'en edges ever closer and artists' minds turn to darker things, the Horror & Macabre Photography gallery begins to swell uncomfortably with snapshots of people in their costumes.  Instead of posting snapshots, get artistic with your photos!  You've already put all that effort into creating amazing costumes and make-up, why not try creating amazing photographs of those cos

Horror and Macabre Photography FX FAQ and guide
So, ever fancied trying out you skills on the horror and macabre side of things? I started out horror and macabre photography with a crumby camera and mostly improvised props. I'm a skint student, after all.
After receiving many questions about my horror and macabre blood effects, I put together a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) journal to help people out and also let people know how a lot of my work is done- whether it is for curiosity, or if people want to have a go themselves. This news article is meant to be a reference to the methods used in my work and the work of others, as well as useful tips and a glossary for some of the items used.
Kit List
My horror work uses an extensive kit list of props and ingredients. Not all of it is used at the same time, but some people may not be familiar with them all. Here is a basic glossary of some things I have used (with examples), so you can find them yourself.

Prints Crop Tool Guide
This guide explains how to access and use the crop tool when submitting a new print or editing an existing print.
The crop tool of a specific product is accessed by clicking the 'Adjust Image' button located to the left beside each product source.
Each individual product range has its own crop tool so you can adjust each product's source image to your desire.
You can even upload and use individually prepared source images for any product.
This would save the time and effort of adjusting your originally submitted image for every desired product, and also increase the quality of your products with more suitably and custom designed source images.
The short version of this guide:
Play with the crop tool for a few minutes and you should get the entire hang of it. It's very easy to use!

Beauty of Inspiration

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 26, 2011, 10:10 AM
Sometimes it's so easy to dismiss this place.. to focus on all the things it ISN'T and forget what it actually is. For all of its faults and misgivings and lack of focus on art, every time i surf the web for inspiration or instruction I always end up coming back here because nowhere else on the net gives me as much exposure to inspiration as dA.

SO i just want to share some of that inspiration right back.... check out the old man on scratchboard.. holy shit! Have you any idea how difficult scratchboard is?! I'm.. so amazed... and now i'm gonna run off and see if i can create something of my own :)

Love to all you creative people :heart:
