If you haven’t noticed yet, this year it’s all about the Halloween Pumpkin head photoshoot! A trend that’s sweeping social media like a storm, we couldn’t help but get on board!
If you’re not sure what to do for Halloween this year, this might be just the thing for you. No elaborate costumes needed, and ladies – no need to worry about makeup.
All you have to do is to get a little creative with your carved pumpkins and get shooting. Whether you’re using a professional photographer or a family friend, the results will be brilliant each time!
A light-hearted take on the usual fall or family-staged photos, this idea adds a little variety to your family album, and will certainly collect a lot of praise if shared on social media.
How to Plan Your Pumpkin Head Photoshoot
Be prepared – it will get messy!
You will need a creatively crafted pumpkin head – choose an expression depending on how moody, quirky or funny you want to go – remember the head is the only expression visible in the shoot, so make sure you execute it properly.
Wrap the inside of the pumpkin in some protective material to make sure you don’t get the mess all over your head and hair. It’s no fun spending the next hour after shoot just cleaning up yourself.
The best surroundings for this type of shoot are moody wood backgrounds or remote areas without many distractions in the background. But that shouldn’t stop you from shooting this in the middle of the city if you dare!
