I had an assignment in my portrait photography class to use dramatic lighting. I figured what could be better for dramatic lighting than a zombie, especially so close to Halloween? I did both the make-up and the photography. The make-up took about 30 minutes, and I spent about 45 minutes on lighting and photography. The model is my friend Luke, and he was more than willing to become a zombie for the day! I heard that after the photoshoot he walked around the campus and scared people!
We actually found this helmet in the studio. I thought it was perfect!
I had a blood capsule that you’re supposed to bite down on to make blood come out of your mouth, but I was told it tasted terrible, so I only got one shot with it.
