Sea Monster Hunt

I apologize for the crappy image quality. It's really hard to photograph things in the dark!
(and with no camera skillz...)

fluffyfluffybunny's avatar pwewii.......i love the looks sooooooooooo cool! XD!
I've been carving to an "extreme" level for the past 6 Halloweens and I still haven't figured out a good way to photograph these things either. This year I've finally recruited a photographer friend of mine to capture the glory as I too "lack the skills" behind the camera...

Your pumpkins are intense! Very nice work! :)
Thanks...I'm working on a "Dogs Playing Poker" pumpkin. I hope I can enter it as well, but it's taking a LONG time. Hopefully you can check it out once I get it done.

Nice pumpkin! I like how you outlined the sails, it looks great!

It may be a little late, but my advice for pumpkin carving pictures is to use a tripod. It helps wonders! If you don't have one, maybe setting the camera on a table or a stack of books would work. Also if you can, I've found that using a short timer on the camera removes vibrations that could come from pushing the button. And for good measure I end up taking a lot of pictures so I have a better chance of getting a good one. Hope this helps!
