Tim Burton inspired San Diego Photo Shootout

In the spirit of Halloween, I attended the San Diego Photog Shootout group's  "Tim Burton inspired Dia De Los Muertos Shootout" last weekend.  AMAZING time!  It was a dreary rainy day, but it only helped to set the dark mood for the shoot.  So fun to play with the lighting, posing, and edits to make photos a little creepy--something different!  The location was phenomenal, Hidden Palms is the most gorgeous estate I have ever seen in my life.  Despite all the gorgeous greenery and architecture, my fav were the photos in the meat locker (directly below) --so bizzare!  We used 'video lights' that I'd never used or even heard of before, very cool.  And on my wishlist now! 

 These shoots are so much fun to do--great practice with great people.  Everyone is so willing to help you learn.  A big shout out to all those who helped bring the day together from organizers to models to stylists and vendors.
