Halloween Photo Contest



What happened to our Legorreta pyramids and the normally blue Corpus Christi sky?

We decided to launch an Art Museum of South Texas photo contest in honor of the Halloween season. We are looking for the scariest sky you can capture with your camera. If you want to take the creepiness up to the next level try out the effect we used in the photo above.

When a photo editing software inverts the colors of an image, each color is replaced with the color directly opposite of it on the color wheel. These opposite colors are known as complementary colors. To create a fun Halloween photo, pick an image with a bright blue sky and puffy white clouds. When you invert the colors in your photo editor of choice you will end up with an ominous orange sky and bleak black clouds.

The Rules:

Submit your photos below or tag your inverted Halloween sky photos with #AMSTHALLOWEEN, and we will feature our favorites on social media. Plus the grand prize winner will get a free AMST Membership for themselves or to give as a gift to a friend.

Don’t have a photo-editing software? We’ve got just the thing for you. On Saturday, October 19 and Saturday, October 26 1-4 PM the Museum will hold an Adult Workshop for digital photo-editing. The course will provide you with simple, step-by-step instructions for basics like cropping, rotation, and sizing images. You’ll also experiment with tools for correcting exposure and adjusting color, as well as working with Photoshop’s powerful layer and selection tools. To sign up for the class click here.
