Halloween night is a great opportunity to capture some interesting and frightening shots of scary scenery or friends in costume. Make sure to capture the memories right with our helpful tips for shooting at night!
1. Friends in Costume

If you’re out in your neighbourhood this Halloween and want to grab a couple shots of friends, look for light. Standing under a street lamp or under a well lit porch is an easy way to find additional light to capture your image.
2. Shooting Ghosts

Look for a dark open area like a soccer field or dark street. Set up your camera on a tripod and select a slow shutter speed. Have your friends run or move in front of the camera while the shutter is open and you’ll get blurry, ghost like figures in your photos. The slower the shutter speed, the more blur you’ll get.
3. Haunting Landscapes
Instead of shooting landscapes when it’s completely dark out, shoot just after sunset when there’s still a little bit of light and colour in the sky. Also look for scenes that are lit with bright lamp posts to help create dark eery shadows.
