Experimentation with strobes and colour gels for group of DC Comics cosplay to create a dark and mood for each character.
DC Comics SuperheroesThis is an awesome group of cosplayers whom I had the pleasure of shooting at Brisbane Supanova. For this shoot i asked them to pose a series of normal and action scenes as well as an iconic look if possible. I had coloured gels prepared for this shoot and experimented with different lighting positions and gels to suit the character. Overall I was happy with this mini-shoot.
