Australia is slow in catching on with Halloween. It’s an occasion that is hugely celebrated in the US, but Australia has never really been excited by it. But I think that will change as my niece is as excited by it as she is with Christmas.
My sister bought her a little witch costume (which was a bit big) and she loved playing and screaming and flying around the house with my son. He was not as impressed by Halloween, but still was able to get into the spirit for his cousin!
My sister has an amazing Jasmin archway and I thought I’d use this as part of the photos. The sun sets right behind it and I thought it would be great for some creative backlighting. I realise now that I exceeded the flash-sync speed of the camera and should’ve used a diffuser for the flash (again) but I continue to learn and I feel I’m improving each time I shoot.
Enjoy… I know my niece did!
