In September, I got work with a lovely cosplayer, IchigoGami
on a Ren from Maji shoot. I have
always liked the costuming of Ren from Maji because of the full skirt and
elegance of the costume. Due to the
elegance of the costume, I chose to do the shoot at Green Spring Gardens
, in Fairfax
County. The gardens have several nice
areas to include a pond, two gazebos, and several small garden areas.
For this shoot, I used a Cannon 70D with an 18-200mm lens,
along with flash unit connected to Young Nu radio triggers, a light stand, and
umbrella. I started the shoot in the gazebo
located next to the pond then moved through the gardens to the trellis area.
The issue I had was trying to correctly expose the model while still trying to
capture the interesting cloud pattern in the sky. For most of the images, I shot using an ISO
of 100, with an f5.6 aperture and a variable shutter speed. In most cases, I was using the flash at full
power. Overall, I am happy with how the
session turned out.
|Aperture: f10, Shutter: 1/250, focal length: 18mm|
|Aperture: f5.6, Shutter: 1/80, focal length: 18mm|
|Aperture: f8, Shutter: 1/125 focal length: 18mm|
