A Vampire a Day... Vampire Rituals

Vampires as predators... There are plenty of ways to visually represent this aspect of the vampire character:
- fangs (fake ones) - although they do help, they are not always required
- shadows/darkness (low-key photography may work here)
- wooden crucifix, blood or other elements hopefully used in a new/surprising way, to emphasize vampire rituals, like a slice of vampire's life
- darkness or shadows - they usually add to the elements of fear, surprise, uncertainty that may be associated with the vampire element
- the vampire's clothing and the harsh contrast between its pale skin and the darkness surrounding him

These are just a few basic ideas, starting points. Depending on available time, models and props, photographing the vampire as a predator can become quite a creative experience.
