Via Flickr: What : Nunnally in Wonderland Rewrite Shoot Where : Pansol, Calamba, Laguna When : August 26, 2013 Cosplayer : Faye Liper Character : Nunnally vi Britania Game/Series/Anime/Band : Code Geass : Nunnally in Wonderland Photo by : LeNekoLightplay About the Photo: With me hibernating for 7 months+ in Cosplay Photography this year, preppin’ for this year’s Snapshot Project 4 is really tough. I usually spend more than a month organising a shoot and there I was, loaded with company projects and other stuff — bonus disaster was the heavy rain and flood. With less than 2 weeks to spare, I tried to plan something that will ignore the weather condition and there, I end up with an Underwater shoot (easy for me to say but hey its my first time doing it so I don’t know yet what to expect). Luckily I was able to find a reliable friend to look for a decent pool to shoot on — the black and white tile was just a bonus, its really unexpected to get a pool that fits on the theme “Alice in Wonderland”. During the shoot, most of my plans failed so I have to recompose my settings, composition, etc —- lots of things were unexpected. Still thanks to yefa’s patience, we were able to get few decent output after 80+ tries YEP! YOU READ IT CORRECTLY! EIGHTY PLUS TRIES. We are in the pool from 1pm to 8pm non-stop >_< So yeah, here’s one of the output~ Code Geass is one of my favorite anime of all time so yeah, I tried to rewrite the scene here with the question WHAT IF..? From the OVA, the one that is imagining the whole wonderland thing was Lelouch. WHAT IF we rewrite the story with Nunnally’s view point? With her little memory of the WORLD..? That’s the thing I kept in my mind while doing the shoot… I wasn’t able to push that STORY REWRITE thing that much because of the technical difficulty we encountered… but we tried.. :3 Anyway, here is the output and my wildcard entry for the competition entitled: “Torn Between Reality; A Blind Girl’s Interpretation of Illusion” Because I really love these water details that seems like boundaries of the two worlds and the arrangement of tiles (which I’ve got by luck) which creates an illusion (which is unusual for a girl who is blind since illusion usually incorporates your eyesight). PS : This one was able to made it to the Top 20 of this year’s competition! The rest of my entries for snapshot project 4 was shot in Fantasy Quest 3:

Where : Fernwood Gardens When : August 25, 2013 Cosplayer : kyo-suke  Character : Ducan Game/Series/Anime/Band : Dream of DollPhoto by : LeNekoLightplay About the Photo: After few months of hibernating, I’m finally back with my new camera (got my softwares updated, so as my PP style too). And my first full event that I covered was Fantasy Quest 3 : Live On!. A day after I arrived from my Boracay Trip, I went to the event LATE again. :)) So yeah, I tried warming up shooting in ambient (bringing my mini-handheld strobe just in-case I really need that fill light). But hey! X100S is really awesome that I rarely use my back-up strobe. Here’s one of the output~! :D

Via Flickr: What : Bioshock Infinite / Elizabeth Shoot Where : Paco Park When : August 4, 2013 Character : Elizabeth Cosplayer : Faye Liper Game/Series/Anime/Band : Bioshock Infinite photo by : LeNeko Lightplay About the Photo: Second Test Run for my X100S, a shoot that is organized by Bri for Cosplay Snapshot 4 (which up until now I still don’t have any entry to send). Since last time I am very happy with its output in ambient, I plan to test my camera using strobes —- which I failed to do so in this shoot because I didn’t know that YN RF-603 will not work on my camera~ OTL So yeah, in the end, I was forced to pump-up my ISO to chase the light which unexpectedly works out just fine (compare to my 1000D). Also aside from pumping-up my ISO, we have to use some random lights in the Park like what I did to this shot. **sorry for the quality I am really having a hard time updating my softwares for X100S… Currently adjusting my PP style until I updated all my softwares.

I wanted to test my new camera so badly that I asked my friends if there’s any shoot happening this weekend and luckily I was invited to one by Jhe. And gez what? Its Jerry Polencé~ Like WTF~?! I am suppose to just test my X100S~ :v Oh well, CHALLENGE ACCEPTED !! Told myself that I will only take 5 STANDARD PHOTOS (of my taste of course) but I end up trigger happy-ing again~ :v This shot is from my X100S — Post-processed in LR5~ I think it has smoother lines yet softer lines compare to 1000D DNGs or am I missing some plugins (since according to Adobe, X100S profile is only available at LR4.4).  **Still in experimentation mode ~ ^_^v Light Setup: Ambient

I attended the shoot just to support my friends and troll Macky Took the photo with an iPhone 4 while assisting Bri and BOOM! Didn’t expect phones can come up with this kind of output (much better than my 1000D OTL). Post-Proccessing Just removed unwanted colors.

Via Flickr: What : M.A.R.C.H. PHILIPPINES’ - The Saber Project Where : Fernwood Garden When : October 21, 2012 Character : Saber Gift Ver. (PVC Figure) Gift Fate/stay night Cosplayer : jaRoukaSama Game/Series/Anime/Band : FATE/Stay Night by Me About the Photo: This shoot is one the cause why we have a POST-HALLOWEEN Shoot. Supposedly, aside from ANOTHER shoot —- which is a PRE-HALLOWEEN Shoot, our Halloween shoot will be scheduled on this date (FATAL FRAME Shoot).  But because Kira received an invitation from Alodia. We decided to move it. Plus I want to hitch on the said shoot as a fanboy I begged Kira to let me join the shoot as his assistant and yeah it was a success! *A* At first I was starstruck with the casts that’s why I’m hesitant to take any photo. Plus I am out in cosplay photography for three weeks (I have no practice). OTL With my camera not coordinating with what I want (lotsa back-focus too), it took me lotsa time to warm-up. But yeah, time is running out so I have to compose stuff that are not too complicated to set. And one of it is these was… pretty basic but works pretty effective most of the time =))) “A SUNSET SHOT” It took me lots of attempts too in order to come-up with the shot though. Because: 1) its the first time I was able to shoot :devjaroukasama: 2) back-focus 3) more back-focus I still feel lucky because the sun’s ray was perfect that time (no sign of Macky a.k.a. RAIN).
