Project Summary

Sydney Manga and Anime Show or "SMASH" is just as the name of the convention suggests: A two day event covering topics on anime, manga, games and cosplay. This year I brought along two studio heads and a battery pack to power them throughout the day. I used softboxes as Key and Fill roles. The total weight of gear was about 36 kilograms. It was a tough event moving all my gear on location but it was worth it.

The first part of the SMASH album is styled differently to part two. I used a brighter back light to bring the subject in to focus. I also shot these in landscape format whilst all of part one were traditional portraits.
