A fellow photog put together a fantastic mixer with a group of Cosplayers from around the city. We all got together at a local studios to just have a good time and shoot some fun photos.

Me being the Dungeons and Dragons geek that I am immediately gravitated to the costumes of that period.

I did a couple different sets of costumes from this genera along with some other stuff.

Lighting Details.
Primary light was a studio strobe (not sure which one) with a gridded strip box (long narrow softbox with baffles).
Secondary lights were gridded speeds lights in some cases 1 2 or 3 of them.

Camera Details
Canon 40D, 24-702.8L, ISO 100, 1/60sec, f4.5

Post Production Details
Level adjustments
Addition of lighting effects
Some tonal contrasting to get the gritty feel I needed for this shoot.

i think u need more light...they seem a bit underexpose...and the light is too harsh...should be softer...this kind of remindes me of my first session :D u also missed focus on 3b

I think for the "gritty" feeling, the harsh light lends to the overall feel. I do agree with the focus issue in 3b though.
