Vampires Among Us


 

Of course Vampires are mythological or folkloric beings who subsist by feeding on the life essence (generally in the form of blood) of living creatures, regardless of whether they are undead or a living person/being. This year, we decided to play a bit on this theme with the help of some wonderful models at a photo shoot in Riverside, California. The stage was the historical downtown area and at an old church. Now why Vampires would like to be there is beyond reason! We found that Vampires come in many shapes and colors like this one blow from Russia, having a tasty Cigar after a good feeding!

Hello, Comrade!

Sometimes, they are Vampire Brides, left wanting at the altar!

 

Teaching the young the tricks of the trade!

 

Or Just dropping in for a quick snack!

Yumm!

Lighting in outdoors shoots needs to be effective and portable. For most of these scenarios we used a Quantum Q-Flash as Key and an old Vivitar V285 as fill (dropped many times and still kicking). Some light modifiers helped, like a diffuser in front of the Q-Flash. We tend to think of this as Guerilla Lighting. Many on location Photographers used studio strobes, portable batteries and huge beauty lights on rolling stands. This is something perhaps we can do, but in the mean time, basics work just fine until we hone our talents to a new level.

Hope you enjoyed our Halloween Set and have a visit to Kerstenbeck Photographic Art to check out some of our other Projects, maybe even purchase a Print or Digital Download!

  1. Je ne suis pas trop pour les vampires, plutôt le loup-garou, ou si tu lis mon futur roman, probablement, le loup qui me fascine et le loup-garou fait sortir la bête de l’homme. Mon roman se trouve sur “Une histoire d’amour”…

    Mais ce sont des belles photos !
