This Halloween, I got a brilliant photoshoot idea for my little boys. We’re not into the horror and gore, but we like wearing superhero costumes.

The boys have been excited about these Halloween photos for a long time. We had an idea of what we wanted: back alley and stormy weather.

For the first time ever, I was hoping for rain during our little photoshoot. We couldn’t have asked for a better environment. Awesome back alley and perfect stormy weather. It wasn’t full-on pouring down rain, but just enough for cool photos! We didn’t have much time since the boys wanted to go out trick-or-treating in their Halloween costumes afterward.

I used a Sony a7III with a Sigma 135mm f1.8 Art lens, and I put a flash behind them to create that rim light and the flash of light behind Batman’s leg.

Overall, we are thrilled with the final results, and the boys were ecstatic!

If you would like to learn some about photography, I have tips and tricks and a free photography course on my website. Also, follow me on social media to see more of my work.
