Halloween Week 43 – Interpret how you wish!

Whether from your research or from your activities this week, your Week 43 images should be inspired by Halloween.

IT’S HALLOWEEN WEEK – so your images this week should capture the fun or horror of it all!

If you are marking the occasion by events then your Halloween Week images will most likely draw inspiration from those. But you might also like to draw inspiration from your research into Halloween. Things you might like to consider are:

  • Jack o’lantern – what’s this all about? Who was Jack? What’s it got to do with Pumpkins?
  • What is Samhain? How might this influence the type of photos you’ll take?
  • Day of the DeadDia de los Muertos originated in Mexico but is an inspiration for artists (and photographers) around the world.
  • Trick or Treat? Where did this tradition come from?
  • Witches – Where did the image of the pointy black hat, broomstick and black cat come from?
  • Captain Kirk – What does the Star Trek captain have to do with Halloween?
  • Coulrophobia – Previously associated with comedy and fun, why has the clown now become a Halloween figure?

Whether from your research or from your activities this week, your Week 43 images should be inspired by Halloween.

As ever, these challenges are to encourage new photography, so we ask you not to simply re-use your existing stock (unless necessary for the particular challenge).

And do please send in your images associated with these challenges – or your other activities as a Club Member. We will publish them on these pages.
