Halloween Dance

This set was done to obtain a base picture for the October 2016 Photo Challenge, "Costumes".

Feodora loves dancing. Bob (the skull) is lecherous, but Feodora just teases him.

     I tried to use my umbrellas and Compact Florescent Lamps (CFL), but the scene outside the window was too bright. I could not balance the inside and outside light levels. The cats' furniture was used to pose Feodora's leg for a 'dance' scene.

     I set up two incandescent spot lights high up near the ceiling to simulate the spotlights in the DAZ render. I moved the CFLs low to fill in some of the shadow.

     I bracketed the exposures to get the right amount of light from outside the window and still have enough light from the interior.

     I took 76 pictures to get the right mix of light from inside and outside. I also posed Feodora and turned her to get the angles that I would need.

The finished product. DAZ models are Michael 4 skeleton, Victoria 4 skeleton, the Castillo del Diablo building, and the Halloween Fun pumpkins.

Them bones, them bones, them dry bones
All bleached and deathly white.
I’ve got skeletons in my closet and
They’re rattlin’ tonight.

 Fate steps in and sees you through
 When you wish upon a star
 Your dreams come true"

VERY Cool Pics Noq :)  :thumb:
"Leaving it to the imagination" is highly overrated.

Sandy is a B6 F1 Realdoll. In addition she has several F1 expression faces as well as standard F10 and f11 faces. She also has several sets of reuseable "Real Breast" prosthetic breasts.
