Anonymous asked: Will you post photos of Comiket then?
Hello Anon! Thanks for the question.
I’m now in Japan, safe and sound. Comiket is something I would like to attend, but we will have to see if it works with my work schedule. If I do attend Comiket, that depends on what their photography rules might be! I will definitely have my camera with me, I can tell you that, and if I do get any good shots, I’ll be sure to share them with you all!
Anonymous asked: Three questions- What is your name? What is your quest? and WHAT is your favorite color?
My name is ~a secret~ (folks can call me Lindsey). My quest is to photograph ALL THE THINGS AND CREATE BEAUTIFUL STORIES WITH IMAGES WHILE HAVING A TON OF FUN WITH PEOPLE
I HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS ABOUT CREATING A FUN AND EXCITING PHOTO SHOOT EXPERIENCE AND MAKING SURE THE COSPLAYER IS ENJOYING THEMSELVES
And my favourite color(s) are purple, green, and silver.
Anonymous asked: How do you create drop shadows with a flashlight outside (maybe when its not even dark)?
The short answer: You probably can’t with a flashlight (during the day).
The long answer: Outside you are competing with one of the most powerful light sources in the world: the sun. In order to create the drop-shadow effect, you need a light source that will be stronger than the ambient light by several exposure steps, and you will need to underexpose the photo for the ambient light. There are a few ways to do this.
robosuplex asked: Ok this isn't a question but you are really awesome! I don't have time right now but I really look forward to going through all your cosplay photos x3 do you have any plans to come to dragoncon or momocon?
Thank you for saying hello, robosuplex! And thank you for the complement, I always appreciate people getting something out of what I do. Your art has great life to it, so I’m happy to discover you too!
As for conventions, I will be unable to attend Dragoncon or Momocon. I’ve heard a ton of good things about both, and Dragoncon is something I want to try to do someday. It sounds like a blast. Actually, in the 2014 year, I will not be able to attend any conventions in the USA, which is an announcement I keep meaning to make!
I’ll be working in Japan for a year! So for folks on the other side of the Pacific, I’ll be in the Kanto region soon.
Ask the Photographer
TMI Tuesday? How about “Ask the Photographer” Day? If you have any questions about my work, photography, cosplay, or anything else, please feel free to ask!
Katsucon 2014 was an amazing rush. Finally, I can start working through all of the photos I took with some amazing cosplayers (new acquaintances and old friends alike!) Due to some unfortunate circumstances due to the snow on Wednesday before the con, I’ve only just been able to get home where I can work on photos.
I’m so excited to get into them, and to share with everyone the great work I was lucky to capture!
