Surprisingly, I have never shot a Black Cat cosplay.. ever. That was the striking motivation for this shoot since Katie approached me to do a shoot with her.
People have called her the Anne Hathaway look alike.. and I won't argue that for a second... and honestly, it has begun talk of a big project this year with Katie which is all a surprise
This shoot was pretty cool.. and quite easy. Why, you say? Because it is done in my basement/storage area of my condo. I didn't have to lug my gear to some place that needed a permit or a place where I couldn't control light.. It was perfect.
Katie was a blast to work with. We collaborated the shots together and her eye and style was very welcomed to the final images.
This was shot with 3 lights - all 3 are CTO gelled since the basement was cluttered with incandescent bulbs.
This past Friday, I was able to do a quick shoot with a new cosplayer, Allie. She drove quite a distance to get some cool pictures and although I did not have a lot of time to make it as extravagant as I wanted to, I think what came out is pretty cool
It was a nice day out and wanted to imitate super-orange evening sun. We went into the woods closeby, gelled up my lights and took advantage of the sun being low.
The first (and possibly the best) photo from the Black Cat shoot we did last week!
I actually didn't decide to make this costume myself - I was asked to make it for a web series pilot I was recently in! There's a lot of really cool people involved that you guys may recognize. As soon as it's out I'm going to be spamming it everywhere, so stay tuned! It was a really unique opportunity and I hope I get to do more. It was fun making a costume for something other than a convention, as well.
Costume made and modeled by me. (with the exception of the mask. That was borrowed from a friend)
