The Halloween 2015 Photo Gallery

Tons of photos in the gallery this year.
Going to try to figure out a way to have them open up in a lightbox so you don't have to click and open each one...  but for now, it's the best I can do.

A huge thanks goes out to my wife Bean.  So many wonderful photos by her in this year's collection.  Her eye for making things beautifully lonely and macabre is truly unparalleled.  Pretty awesome when your favorite artist happens to be your wife.

Really great pics. You two talents together are a perfect match.

You out did yourself this year. I cant see how you found the time to do it all.

Bean truly has an eye when it comes to photos - having such great subjects must make it easier, tho! Kudos to both of you for such excellence.

Rot said...

Thanks, guys : )

These are Amazing, Rot. I can see why there are so many shots in the gallery....it would be really hard to weed any of those out. They are all so different it is really hard to pick a favorite but I think I am still crushing on that little one over the pail : ) Totally gorgeous as usual!!!
I think you need to keep one of those guys out thru Xmas. Just put a cloak on him and call him Krampus! You are still the king of Halloween magic!

Thanks! :)

I really like the arrangement of shots. It tells a story and transports you into this killers world.

First, the daytime shots feels like you stumbled upon something that has been hidden from the outside world.

The night shots touches on your curiosity and bring you back to the scene for more answers.

The Vintage shots pulls you into its past and how it all started.

Maybe I'm just reading into something that's not there but I really enjoyed clicking on each pic seeing all the details that went into this. The Props, the Installment, the lighting, the video, and the camera work all bring it together as very well thought out Haunting.

Thank you Mr.Rot and Ms. Bean!!

She has such a great eye. I love the detail on your skelly scarecrows. So much to look at. I can see where you felt you might have taken on more than you could chew...the level of detail is astounding. But you did it! You would never know this is in your yard either. And can I just say how much i love your perfectly vintage carved pumpkin face? I am just in love. Thanks for your art to the world!

You can smell the day shots, they are so good. I do think the night shots win, though. Bean's jackos have never seemed more perfect. I like the day vs night. The album is so great. Excellent job.

Rot said...

Thanks,guys!
So glad you dig the shots...and the huge amount of them.
I've always loved tons of Haunt photos. I love when a fellow haunter posts a ton. Just going through each one and studying detail is a huge hobby of mine : )

More is better in the world of Haunt photos...

man, THAT dude IS one sick Mo. SO sad how the life was LITERALLY tortured right outta his victims. Oh my god, the thoughts of that while looking at these pics is really almost TOO much to bear & that's because of ALL the painstaking attention paid to detail, SO much so, that's it's pretty hard to believe that...what i'm looking at, didn't really take place. come on, human skellies posing as ghosts!!!. just Heinous.

& those jacks.......in the end, they're EVIL little narrators (the periods to this Horrendous tale of torture & murder.) some are saying, come in & visit while others are snickering with delight (i could go on & on)....really disturbs me for some reason. Thank YOU Mlle Bean. : )

you've got your own "Motel Hotel" goin on for sure..<3
you kilt man...BIG Time. : )

Rot said...

And, Sara, I agree about Bean's jackos.... I'm not sure where she channels those faces from, but I'm so grateful.

Rot said...

girl6, we had one person visit and they just kept saying "man, it's just so cruel...so brutal... like he let those people ROT up there...just SO SO SOOOO Brutal..." and it was odd getting into "character" trying to think as the guy would think.

girl6 said...

hahaha...oh my god, yeah man. you would feel real icky thinking in that mode. & imagine when the cops FINALLY make it there & the look on their faces as they FULLY realize what has taken place & how late they are. i see that scene in my head...the cops just standing there, leaves fluttering all around them & THOSE jacks....just sittin there, grinnin away....like "awwwww poor babies, you're just a tad late".

ahhhhhhh..You guys...make such beautiful music together.<3

ps. i think my faves are the pot stirrer & the soul with the bowed head--long stringy hair....brrrrrr....man, i really feel him. & HAPPY to hear your visitors, really get & enjoy what you guys do for them. : )

Beautiful shots! You've both outdone yourselves this year!!! Very creepy, and believable. The mood of the daylight pics is rather horrifying, with a realism that is disturbing. The night shots, on the other hand, have an otherworldly quality about them...like a hellish presence has been conjured up by this display of carnage (and is quite pleased).

If I may be so bold, can you give us a bit of insight into what lighting you use? This year, in particular, I had a difficult time getting my lighting just right (and, as a result, very few pictures turned out the way I wanted them to. Some of this comes from having a new yard, and trying to figure out how to set everything up). Your haunt always has the lighting JUST right!

Your love is amazingly talented. What a great eye for composition!

bean said...

Thank you, love. Though I must say, you make it easy....giving such beautifully horrific subject matter to photograph. It's cool when your favorite artist is your husband. ;)
