Fun with the Cosplay shoot

I was approached by Angie to see if I was willing to shoot her and a friend in various cosplay outfits as they wanted to have some fun together. It turned out the friend was Kristara who I had shot previously.

They had originally wanted a garden location so we arranged a time for them to come to my place as we have a large and very private section. Unfortunately on the day of the shoot the weather packed in and so we ended up shooting in my studio. It can get cosy in there when you have a number of people and all the lighting gear.

We ended up shooting later than planned due to makeup taking longer than planned and a muck up in communication as to where my place was, however once everyone was here the whole shoot took 90 minutes. I did not consider this too bad as they changed twice into different outfits.

Lighting for the shoot was two elinchroms in the large square soft boxes.
