Edgier Halloween Ghost Kinda thing???
www.greggcestaro.com Here’s another shot separate event blended concept I did for Oct. Saw the movie Mungo Lake (cool movie) the other week which inspired me to do a apparition shot. First, shot was the neighbor girl in her Halloween costume I shot for the paper, the other was the kitchen window at an old farm house we stayed while doing some archaeology in the Bandera Texas area. Unknowingly, these separate images turned out to be a perfect fit. The color version of this was cool but the black and white had a better feel to it.
So, it’s a basic cutout, resize and set opacity blend and window pane cutout and deep desaturate with a contrast bump and smart sharpen for edge – drag and drop kinda thing. Debating whether I should keep the B/W but kept the reds a la Sin City, hmmmmmmm.
