  6. The photographer used many different angels to create all these images some from above and below or some that may have been taken on a tripod. Dull colors were used but also had children’s colors and he added lots of shadows in his photos to add more intense feelings or creepy feelings. I can use lighting techniques to get a sense of creepy in the images I take.

  8. I think that the photographer used unusual angle to create some of these photos. I think that dark colors were used in these types of photos to create the nightmarish tense in the photo. I think in some of the images low key lighting was used in some of them but not all of them. The one photo that gave me an idea was the photo of the clown behind the sheet was kind of scary to me because when I was little I used to hate clowns so much because they used to scare me all the time.

  9. The angles the photographer used to create the nightmares were like he was a little kid watching. The colors that were used were more of a vibrant color spectrum. The lighting gives the creatures shadows and the object and human beings also but its a light but also dark giving it a scarier look.I would use the hands coming out from under the bed.

  13. Most of Hoffine’s pictures had angles from below which is kind of made it like a little kid’s perspective of the scene. It also made everything else look bigger and more frightening. Most of the colors were bright ones like pink and yellow. The lighting he used created lots of shadows which made his pictures more nightmarish. Creating lots of shadows is something I want to do in my nightmare photo challenge.
