Naska Style photo session
This was a private photo session set up by a cosplayer named Naska. Naska was a friend of Ichii Hiori, and Hiori was invited as a guest.
This was the first time I met Naska. This was the sixth photo session of Hiori that I attended.
There were five people who participated in the first session, and seven in the second session.
This photo session was held in a TV studio. There were a lot of studio lights from the ceiling, that created a LOT of heat, but it was still fairly dark. Some people brought a couple of lamps (300 watts or so), but that didn't add much light unless you were very close too it. I used two 550EX flashes, one inside my litedome, with the STE2, but since the walls were dark grey the STE2's light didn't bounce around the room enough to trigger the flashes consistently. I had to make sure that the receiver on the 550EX was facing me, and was in direct sight from the STE2.
photo notesI used my 20D, and took 460 photos with 348 of them worth keeping.
I ended up with 182 photos of Hiori, 48 photos of Naska, and 116 photos of them together.
