Equipment & Setup
This was a photoshoot done in the town of Berry in New South Wales. I visited the rural township to meet with Feisty Cuffs at the Berry Festival. Feisty was in her Poison Ivy costume for the day. You can find her cosplay work here.
The location was a small park opposite the Berry School of Arts. We found an old wooden bench and some trees. I had to avoid the street and some houses in the background, otherwise it was a simple natural light shoot under some trees.
Because it was natural light, I did have to correct foreground and background quite a bit in Photoshop. This is time consuming and I much rather have lights if I could take it with me everywhere. I pushed the vibrancy up and increased the contrast/sharpness in selected areas. It is what makes her "pop".
