At Anime Central 2013 One More Time Cosplay debuted their Tiny Tina and Mad Moxxi Borderlands 2 cosplay along with Handsomefriskies as Handsome Jack. I had a blast doing a photoshoot with them and I wish I had Tiny Tina’s energy during conventions. You can click here to view the Borderlands 2 photoshoot gallery.

Like my last post, I’ll put the camera gear and location below the fold for anyone interested…

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, and powering my Speedlight are the awesome Eneloop XX Batteries

Notes: I can’t rave enough about how much I love the Eneloop XX batteries. They’ve been my trusty steed for my SB-700 flash during photoshoots. They recycle faster than most cheaper rechargeable AA batteries and they hold their charge longer. For the tech geeks out there here’s a test/review on them: Eneloop XX Test Results. If the price is a little too steep for your taste,┬áthen the regular white Eneloops are great as well!

Photoshoot Location:
For this shoot we went outside behind the South tower of the Hyatt Regency in Rosemont, IL. It’s a bit industrial looking back there with the gravel, fence, concrete, etc. It was probably the best place around the convention that would fit the Borderlands theme.
