Sorry for the long wait. I’ve been busy with work, photo shoots, and a lot more exciting things planned for the future.
With the recent release of Fantastic Beast: Crimes of Grindelwald, Nick reached out to me to do a cosplay studio shoot of his updated Newt Scamander cosplay. This is actually my second shoot with Nick in his Newt cosplay, which was at C2E2 this past year. It’s interesting how much his cosplay has improved since C2E2; with a new coat, new beasts, and even makeup to give more character. As great as the shoot was, a studio shoot can only give you so much diversity in photos. In the future, it would be nice to shoot a Newt cosplay around the historic parts of downtown Chicago.
Also to add, this was also my first photo shoot using my new Pixel Tubes from Astera. These items are 3 foot LED tubes that This light was demoed at my workplace, and thought of getting a few for my studio. They were not as powerful as I hoped to change the color on the backdrop. However, they were nice to have for additional colors and more lighting on the subject.
