Monster Hunter

Cosplayer MJ-Battle and I were fortunate to have a little jungle in the convention center lobby to use as an ideal location.

I did not have any photos I could find of lightning that I photographed, so I drew it instead, based on images I found online. Doesn't he look like a Rocker, playing Electric Bone Guitar? Anime Expo 2011 Los Angeles, California

I was able to get the plants to cast interesting shadows using a direct flash from an angle, rather than the umbrella lighting I do more often. Anime Expo 2011 Los Angeles, California

This photo was taken in the convention center lobby. There was a little jungle near the main lobby. I used an outdoor jungle photo to fill in the spaces where the convention center walls could be seen. With my 16mm lens, I was able to make cosplayer MJ-Battle's Bone Sword look even more gigantic. The strobe lighting through the plants casted some nice shadows onto his weapon. Anime Expo 2011 Los Angeles, California

This was a paid cosplay photo session during the convention. He was photographed in the jungle location in the lobby, but I did a background replacement with post editing. Anime Expo 2011 Los Angeles, California
