We had so much fun going out last night for a mini photo shoot with her Halloween costume on. What do you think of the edit...going for a moody spooky feel. What's your favorite and why?

She was genuinely pissed off at me here, lol

I really liked the light in this spot...

What did I learn? I have lots to learn about posing and skin tones are hard to edit consistently. I could spend days editing these.

My favourite, they're all great, is 1. I love the eeriness of the trees and her expression. The costume is perfect How about selecting her out and then adding her as a layer and playing with blending modes and opacity to create an even more spooky effect?

Thanks so much Pam!  I have almost no experience in Photoshop so don't really even know how to begin with it.  You've inspired me to try to learn...something I've wanted to do for a while but just haven't committed to it yet.

#1 is my favorite - it looks like a book cover or a poster and has little bit of "Wednesday Addams". ghost

#1 does it for me, although I clicked on it to bring it down to size, and liked it even better! Your background is perfect, and you've placed her beautifully. #4 is a close second, simply because it feels less posed, and I could enjoy her costume more, unobserved. All in all, you done good with this set, and your daughter is gorgeous!

#1 Is incredible. I love the composition and feel you've created. (The line of the trail, the height of the trees - her face placement in the overall frame) My first response was "Ooo, Penny Dreadful" feel. Then I went back after viewing the series and my response changed to "Ooo, Penny Dreadful - Child-style". LOL ... Nice work on these!

Thank you Tawnya...I love the Penny Dreadful-Child style analogy!  I love the mood on that show.

Nice series! She, kind of, reminds me of the little girl in "The Adams Family" TV series.....great mood lighting & her dour expressions are perfect to complete the effect.....

#2 Genuinely pissed off but yet willing to pose. #3,5,&6 are my favorites, I like her coloring as well as the spooky feeling you have  created. I think that skin tone coloring is one of the hardest edits there is to make.

Thanks Camellia...she is a really good sport most of the time.  My boys don't want to have anything to do with me and my camera.

The first is my favorite - for the spooky, don't mess with me expression.
She has a great look on her face, she looks like she has just come out of the woods looks for something or someone to work her magic on. 
#3 She looks like she is pondering what she is going to do next.
This is one of the cutest Witch costumes I have ever seen - She is ADORABLE
These are SUPER cute - You did a great job, the cutest model didn't hurt.
