(Naruto: Shippuuden 1st OP)

We had a trial Naruto: Shippuuden photoshoot yesterday (trial because my costume is still incomplete and it was just me and Sasuke that day) to go with one of our last visits to our beloved Ajisen Ramen before they close down the branch near school. :crying: ZETSUBOUSHITAAAAAAA

:iconbehindinfinity: myself as Uzumaki Naruto
:camera: photography by Rayson Lozada ~sinag-araw

Here's the first shot of the set, inspired by the first Shippuuden opening: [link] The song cracks me up (albeit in a good way) but mannnnn, I can't tell you how excited I was to see that, after suffering through all those filler episodes. :D I mean, I read the manga as well, but it's different seeing them animated.

Based on comments I've observed on pieces of Naruto fan art, I suppose there are some of you who might complain about us cosplaying such an overdone series, or just seeing more Naruto stuff on dA but... Sorry, I'm not the type to stop liking something just because it's gotten popular. :) Just close the window or ignore the thumbnail if you don't want to see it. Takes a lot less effort than typing up a whole comment about how much you don't like it. Silly people. :lol:

It's just that, gah, I've loved the Naruto series from the very start. And it has even greater emotional significance to me since I had met some of the people I'm most thankful for because of it. :cheese:

:bulletgreen: I did the color editing. Added a vignette and stuff.
:bulletgreen: Sorry 'bout the grain! It was getting pretty dark! ISO 1600, argh!
:bulletgreen: Rayson took this shot from a relatively low angle so we got a whole lot of sky.
:bulletgreen: The way my eyes look is due to the combined effects of applying eyeliner as certain way and squinting from staring at the sun too long. XD
:bulletgreen: It's not certain I'll be Naruto for the actual shoot, but I had so much fun cosplaying him. Those facial expressions are a riot.
:bulletgreen: If you've got any questions, perhaps you'd like to take a look at my Cosplay Photography Guide. Thank you!
