The annual Halloween bash that is Convention Hell is getting ready to go down at Asbury Park’s Convention Hall. For the past three years Dark City Entertainment has put on what has become, the party of the year. The entire arena is transformed into a gigantic concert hall of spookiness and select local bands grace the stage to cover some of their favorite artists. While song is the highlight of the night, this is the one event where I will bypass the music photos for some step and repeat portrait stylings. Of course with everyone being in costume and when the opportunity presents itself, I just have to play around with the shots. A little diddy I made up of the hostess and her bill, no this is not the official flyer.
When you have 800 people attend an event, in some amazing costumes, can it get any better for a portrait guy? Me thinks not. Two of my favorite from last years gala:
I have never been that slick in doing composites, it still takes me forever to cut something out, but the more you try the better you get, I think.

This next one I think I have used somewhere before, but I really like their look so I popped them on a new background:
These guys are from two years ago and is one of the first composites I did from these shows when I started acquiring backgrounds.
Well, blood and ghoul is part of the mantra of the season…
Turn of the century NY set in London? Little help with this period style please…
Love this dude, The Purge….
That’s all for now. Thanks for stopping by, See you on the 28th!
