Galadriel & Thranduil Cosplay photoshoot
In October last year, our friend elvesgonewild visited us again to hang out for the weekend. Aby and her both have elven costumes from the Lord of the Rings / The Hobbit franchise and we never managed to take photos together. And with conventions still being cancelled, we decided to take this to the woods.
While forests tend to be difficult places for nice portrait photography (at least when you hate the color green like me, lmao), I really wanted to try something different from the usual elf in the woods photoshoot that we sometimes do. Shooting with off camera flash in an outdoor location to simulate natural light isn’t something I usually do either, but I really wanted to try changing the mood to something ethereal and dark, trying to fake a “night time” by working with a gel-covered speedlight and manipulating the white balance.
We had a lot of fun in the deep woods, until we met a couple of strollers that gave us serial killer vibes, haha.
We hope you enjoy!
