Also from this shoot:


I had the amazing opportunity to shoot inside of a real Matrix-themed Dojo at Black Knight Martial Arts here in Atlanta! The Visual Insanity of Miracole Burns (fan page) had this neat idea for this location for her new Psylocke costume and I was all over it!

I was able to throw some ideas and lighting tricks around to get a neat beauty effect along with some lens flares (to come) to mimic purple super powers :)

Here is the first of a pretty large set of awesome pics from this weekend - Miracole could hold this pose for a good 2 seconds before falling over.. trust me.. looks a lot easier than it actually is!

Psylocke. Okay, I never actually got her name X-Men: Apocalypse. I wish she'd wear some pants. An actual warrior won't expose them-self this much in the crotch area.

That's very good. She actually knows how to hold swords. Not that many people can do that.

Very nicely done; the costume looks top-notch.
The red sash adds a nice contrast,
