Why yes! I’m in the Kanto area for the next year! It’s been an interesting experience so far. I’ve been itching to take cosplay photos! Haha
Trying to find shikarius is like looking for a gaikokujin needle in a large cosplay haystack.
Anonymous said: 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 said: 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 said: 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.
