Royal Atlantean portrait

Newer Older

I wish I could say that I was the one who set up this shot... but I can't lie. Another photographer had set up a triangle of slave-flashes and I asked if he minded if I took a couple of pics while he was re-setting up his gear. But I think this photo turned out amazing!

Tech stuff: cleaned up a few objects on the floor (debris, marking tape) and blended in Mera's lace-front wig a bit; used Topaz Adjust's Clarity filter at 75% to bring out more details in their costumes, faces (why I blended in the wig), and backgrounds. I'm trying to *not* over-process my pics and let the camera do most of the work on the front-end instead of using PS to fix issues in post-production.

Comments and critiques are welcomed.

UPDATE: Mera & Aquaman were featured in Uproxx's A Compendium of Cool Comics Cosplay - November 23rd (2012). I truly am humbled by all the great feedback and folks liking this picture.

    - I humbly thank you for the compliment. As the photographer, I'm just glad I was able to capture the image to do them justice on all the work they did on their costumes.
