BEHIND THE SCENE…
Back to school as a student! I wish. This shoot is taken at Republic Polytechnic, with the utter fear of getting thrown out by security if we deploy our full gear again. Singapore kind of suck. Everything is about having to pay here in the world’s most expensive city.
So we started the shoot in a rather obscure corridor to avoid the eyes of some over-zealous security guards. We had just 3 simple off-camera flashes, 1 reflector and color gels. Back-to-basics stuff, but good thing we are indoor and bouncing the flashes off the walls did their magic.
Simple gears we had, but that did the job of getting our shots anyway. Aye, as I felt crippled without my gear towards the end of the shoot, I decided to f*** the rules. I had a money shot that I really wanted to do, and broke out my Godox.
Even if the security were to come, we would already have our shots anyway. So I had no qualms risking for this shot. It wasn’t quite as easy faking anti-gravity. I initially wanted a top-down approach as lying flat on the floor is much easier for the cosplayer, but it turns out that I need to be a titan for a decent top-down.
We then finally settled for standing flat against the wall instead. After a few tries of hair flipping, we finally got this epic shot…
A special thanks to all the guys for being so patient with my
tortures creative snags.
