How to Create Frightening Photos

Choose a subject

Ask a close friend or family member to be your model for this scary shot, and set up a camera on a tripod. Firstly, take a photo of a room which can be used as the background in the completed image. Making sure that you don’t move the camera and without adjusting the settings, ask your model to position themselves in front of the camera in the same room where you took your background image. You will need to take a photo of your model on a prop that provides a raised surface from the ground to give the impression that they are levitating. A ladder, table or chair will provide you with the effect you need, but ensure safety precautions are taken at all times, and help your model on and off the platform. Make sure that you don’t move the camera when you are taking the photograph.

Make use of photo editing software

Using a photo editing program of your choice, load your digital prints and place both the background photograph and the image of your model side-by-side in the software. Using your mouse, place the image with your model on top of the original background image. Both photographs should be lined up correctly. Set the image opacity for the photograph with your model to around 50% by using the opacity tool in the control panel of the software program. Experiment with the different settings.

Use filters and layers

To create a ghostly image of a person levitating, use a layer mask from the control panel of your software program and use an eraser or brush tool to cover-up the prop that you used in your second photo. Because you used the opacity tool in the previous step, the area which contained your prop should be filled with the underlying background image to create a scary levitation effect. Save your image and send your levitation photography to family and friends.

Wildlife Stock Photos

Online collection of photos is popularly known as a stock photo website. The stock photo websites house a great collection of images on various subjects such as humans, technology, automobile, wellness, and gadgets etc. One of the categories we find on these websites is wildlife stock of images. This category is a broad category under which the subcategories may include images of birds, animals, insects, landscapes, jungles, trees and other wildlife related images.

They are available widely on the Internet. All you need is to search for the term ‘wildlife stock photos’ and you are done. The search engine may display hundreds of stock photo websites that offer wildlife snaps.

While some photo stock websites may offer royalty free wildlife photos to be used free of cost, others may charge for them. On some websites, a small photo could be available for free but then a high-resolution photo could cost you a penny. A premium account on such photo stock sites allows the user to download some number of photos a day with limited quota say five photos a day or 100 photos a month. However, it depends on the account type, and it differs from site to site.

The photos of wildlife may have different sizes and types. For instance, a website may offer .jpeg or .png image or for the designers, it may also offer wildlife vector illustrations so that they can use the photos in different ways. Vector images come with no restriction as stretching images does not lose the pixels and so the quality. This does not happen with popular .jpeg images.

The photos available on genuine photo stock sites are of good quality. They have been taken by professional photographers. The best part of such websites is you can get photos as small as a postcard or as big as a hoarding size using vector. The photos always come with preview so that you can look at the details before using it or making a purchase.
