Fantasy Shoot – D&D Elven Raner
Last weekend I did a photo shoot for one of my good friends. She wanted a fantasy shoot similar to what I did for myself awhile back. While I wanted to go for a Viking theme it turned out to be more along the lines of a D&D elven ranger. I had limited supplies to work from but with a cloak, a leather skirt, two sarongs, a staff and a drinking horn made for a decent ranger look. You can see the whole gallery here.
I used a standard backdrop, two stand light, and an off camera flash for lighting. I shot using an 18-55mm lens, at an aperture of f8, multiple shutter speeds and a 200 ISO. I then post processed the images in LightRoom and then again in Photoshop Elements. Took around a 100 shots but ended up with only 38 good images. I eliminated many of the shots because they were unflattering. Overall I do like the look of the shots I did keep and think they do capture her inner ranger.
