Photographer Amanda Chapman has been giving Halloween the proper treatment since 2012. The project called 31 Days Of Halloween started when Amanda’s husband was diagnosed with Cancer and Amanda was looking to give something positive for the family to focus at.
Her definition of “something positive to focus at” was 31 Days Of Halloween – a month where Amanda shot a different self portrait with full makeup as a character from one of her favorite stories.
While Amanda is a talented photographer, a lot of the prep goes into makeup, which is quite impressive considering Amanda’s makeup education comes mainly from watching youtube tutorials.
Last year Amanda shared with us that her setup involves a a Canon 5D Mark III with a 24-105mm lens, a softboxed Alien Bees B800 and some (gelled) kickers if needed.
