Cool. Is that backlight/flare a flash, or something ambient (the sun), or added in post?

Another one from the Dragon Age set.

I've been hired by an Orlando burlesque troupe as the official photographer. Hired, as in: my wife and I get in free before the show, and they give me a bar tab, and I get to hang out with dancing burlesque girls (and guys) and take all the pictures I want. Can't make the mortgage with that kind of pay grade, but I've been taking this opportunity to continue to try new things, push my limits, and generally improve my skills.

This month's show theme was "Pulp novels" so I composed, posed, and shot the pre-show portraits with the intention of making bad pulp-novel covers. One of my 2014 resolutions was to continue to improve my skills in graphic work, and this was a great opportunity.

Sorry (not really sorry) for three photos in picture of the day. I made a set of 12, click through to my flickr for the full set. The rest aren't really cosplay-ish, but they're pretty fun anyway.

Both =) He had an LED light next to his mask and I had him pointed it straight to the camera which I believe was enough to blow it out, but I decided to augment it with some lens flare. The background is the pool at ANA lit up naturally with the pool lights.

Congrats on the gig! If you did both the shooting and processing work, I feel like you should be comped a little more. Unless you took advantage and ran that tab into the ground, then that's cool.

Since I couldn't easily travel with my DIY beauty dish to Katsucon, I ended up using a 27" square brolly (on a light stand packed into a rolling baseball bat bag, weighted down with some sandbags), powered by 2 Neewer TT850 speedlites, camera-left.
