Last winter while I was out looking for people to shoot two of these girls came walking down a promenade all dressed up in their Cosplay outfits. I took a few quick frames and stayed in touch via Facebook.
Spring finally arrived here in Ontario and we set up an outdoor shoot. Here’s the original two on the outside and two new friends in between.
It was overcast when I grabbed this frame so I just whited out the background completely.
Must be the weekend. The women are getting their warpaint on ready to go out.
Nancy and I did a fun shoot tonight in an Aboriginal costume we pieced together.
Topaz Simplify was used to give a painterly effect.
This is a one light setup. I used my largest PLM on a B1600 against a pure black paper background to get this simple effect. By standing right in front of the PLM I was using it essentially as an oversized Ring Flash.
