As you all probably know by now, I’m an old timey type photographer. This is an 8x10 ambrotype on black glass. That’s my wife as the “Voodoo Queen”. I just wanted to make a moody, creepy plate for Halloween. She loves halloween. The skull is a chacma baboon skull. It’s the closest real skull I have to human. I don’t want a real human skull… they’re very expensive, and the creepy factor is just too dang high for me. So, I stick with animals.
Here’s a behind the scenes:
