Dave Strider Cosplay Photoshoot at Acen 2013

At Anime Central this year I was lucky to do two photoshoots with Pockytheif. Here is the photoshoot gallery of her Dave Strider cosplay from Homestuck. After the break I’ll list what gear I used and the location at the convention.

Gear Used:
Camera: Nikon D600 DSLR Camera
Lens: 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR Kit Lens
Lighting: Nikon SB-700 Speedlight
Light Modifier: Rogue 3-in-1 Grid
Light Remotes: Phottix Odin TTL System
Other: Calumet Ultra Compact Light Stand, Calumet Umbrella Adapter with Cold Shoe Mount

Notes: The awesome thing about the Rogue 3-in-1 Grid modifier is that one can vary the angle of light by using the holder as a snoot (which I did for most of the shots), use either of the two grids for a 45 or 25 degree spread, or you can stack the two grids for a tight 16 degree spot which I used in the last two photos in the gallery.

Photoshoot Location:
The location was outside under the South tower of the Hyatt Regency near the convention center in Rosemont, IL. This area can get kind of crowded during the day, but at night it clears out and can be a great backdrop… at least much nicer than inside with tacky hotel carpet.
