How to Take Great Halloween Pictures of the Kids

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND (WRIC)—Halloween is just three days away, and there's no doubt that parents will be taking pictures of their little ghouls and goblins as they trick-or-treat.

On Monday, Mary Fisk-Taylor of Hayes & Fisk Photography stopped by the 8News studio to share her advice on taking better pictures. She recommends taking photos of your kids at eye level and using natural lighting.

"Stay away from the flash, if at all possible," Fisk-Taylor said. "Because it washes out the costume, washes out the skin tone."

If you plan to use your smartphone, Fisk-Taylor says to do your best to avoid shaky shots and to take close-ups rather than using the zoom feature.

"Take a lot of fun pictures so that you can have a really great scrapbook," she said.
