Cosplay is awesome to shoot. (For those not in the know, cosplay is the dressing up or role play of a named character, according to Wikipedia, or better yet, check out this rather good doco on iTunes.)
For this particular shoot, model Cassandra Jane played the part of Shego (in the latex green) and model Genevieve Thomas played the part of Kim Impossible (the red head). We wanted to shoot outdoors, so picked a suitable location, and aimed to make it an action scene, as the two characters are arch enemies. After several hours of makeup and preparation, we headed to the location. The weather – always a factor in outdoor shoots, but particularly important when one of the models is dressed in full latex – seemed to be holding up, and so we headed to the location, about a 25 min drive from the studio and a 5 min walk into the bush. I decided to take the Nikon CLS system using 3 x SB800 speedlites and the Nikon SU800 Commander for this shoot – ease of portability, having to carry everything myself, and being self powered, since forests don’t come with power outlets.
