  1. Great portraits, love the lighting. Awesome job on the make up, I truly feel as if I’m viewing private family photos of an undead family.

  2. This is a very interesting portrait series and I would like to know more about what inspired you to take these photos. I would suggest working on lighting is some of these images, they seem a tad too dark, as well as white balance. I know that most older family have a discoloring to them due to age but the yellow tint in the images seem to forced. The smoke creates a great effect and would like to see more dodging and burning on the individuals themselves to really have them pop out of the image. Great images!

  3. Wow, the amount of work put into these photos in incredible! Everything from the cropping to the colors to the lighting is spot on. Great job!

  4. This is a beautiful series! So creative and different. The makeup, costume, and smoke all add to the effect you are trying to portray. I think the second photo is the strongest because your subject really pops while still getting the same message across, whereas the others are very monotonous with the tones and subjects seem to fade into the background.

  5. This is a very creative and unique series of images. I don’t know why, but I feel like the makeup and costume choices seem like something out of a Tim Burton film. All of the effects you used within your images really drive home your message of haunting within your portraits. The lighting and the color palette used is truly remarkable. Everything is spot on!
