Cosplay Photoshoot

  • Feb 16, 2014 · 1:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We did a cosplay photoshoot with the Geekery meet up group a while back and I think it is time we did another one. Cosplay is short for costume play and is when people dress up as specific characters from various things. I posted this event on the geekery board as well so hopefully we will get as strong a turnout as last time. If anyone knows people interested in cosplay be sure to tell them about this event. I have a lighting setup that I will bring. I know that last time someone had a constant lighting setup which was nice since multiple photographers could use it at once.  The meet up will be at the Fitchburg library in the big A/B meeting room.  I will be bringing a backdrop and probably 4-5 studio strobes with various modifiers. If anyone else has lights they can bring I think it would be a great help.  I probably have an extra trigger someone could use with my light setup.  We have the meeting room from 1:30 till 5:00 so we will need to do all setup and break down during that time.  The cosplay models will be showing up right at 1:30, but based on my experience last time it will take them a few minutes to get into costume.  If there is anyone bringing lights that can't make it at 1:30 please be sure to let me know so I can save a spot for you to setup.  Otherwise please feel free to stop in whenever you can, even if you can't make the entire event.

    I am post processing the images, it will take me some time because I get only 30 minutes every day to do it.

    So it sounds like Claudia has a light setup she is bringing and I have my lights. Anyone else? For those of you that are wait listed, I may be able to include you if you have lights you can bring. The more stations we can setup the more photographers we can have.

      Alright I just acquired a constant light that I can setup. Does anyone have a backdrop we can put it on.

    • Kristian D.

      I am no longer going to be able to bring the constant light that I have due to a problem with the bulbs that I ordered. Sorry everyone. I will still have my studio lights though.

    Is anyone that is attending interested in learning about how to set up and use studio lighting? Kevin and I would be happy to go through how to set up lights, the effects of various modifiers and lighting types, etc. Just want to gauge interest now so we know if it would be useful to put together any materials or if we should just plan on taking pictures.

      Hi Kristian,
      I bought a few things to do lighting but haven't being practicing. I got a couple of light modifiers with stand, one Speedlite 580EX II, a Gossen light meter and a set of pocketwizard Plus III. I would like to bring them and maybe you can give me some tips. So, I would be very interested in learning.
      Thanks
      Alfredo

      I am interested in knowing how to set up and use studio lighting. Thanks for the offer. I used speedlite Canon 580 EX before. Other than that I don't have any experience. One challenge I have taken up is to shoot action in continous bursts.

    Does anyone have light or backdrops they can bring?

    January 30, 2014

    • Kristian D.

      Yup. It is so great to have willing models with such interesting costumes and props. It's like a dream come true.

      I have 2 speed lights and a reflector...Please feel free to use it. There is a remote radio(pair) controller too. The speedlights and remote controllers works with Canon only.
