Take your pumpkin-carving skills to the next level this Halloween! Instead of the usual jack-o-lantern faces, why not use your own face, or that of a friend or family member. In this tutorial you’ll learn how to convert the photo to black and white, boost the contrast and then change it to a negative image that can be used as a stencil for carving. Happy Halloween, and don’t forget to share your results with us!
