Spiderman cosplay photoshoot

I’ve been wanting to do a cosplay portrait photo-shoot for a long time but I didn’t have everything I needed to be able to light it how I wanted it. Once I had it, I was quick to arrange for a collaboration photo-shoot and here are the results…

As you can see from the ‘behind-the-scenes’ photo, I was working with the following:

  • Sony Camera
  • 90mm macro lens (but one of the sharpest lenses on the market!)
  • F8 / 1/250 / ISO 200
  • 2 x Godox speedlights Gelled, one blue and one red. Both of these in diffused strip-boxes and both with grids
  • 1 x Godox V1 with a grid as my kicker light
  • 1 x AD200 with grid and barn-door as the main fill light

We had a two-hour portrait photography session so we ended up with a lot of photos for Jack from Masked Marvels. to use on social media and their upcoming website.

I had the camera connected up to my Mac so we could all see in real-time how the photos were looking. This is so useful for tweaking poses but also to reassure the client because they can see exactly how the photos are coming out.

If you are thinking about getting your own portraits done and you are looking for a portrait photographer then look no further 🙂
