Had a really great time yesterday at GameStart Asia 2015 (14th November 2015). Caught some cosplayers in game/movie-related fantastic costumes. Couldn’t resist the urge to take shots of them on location. All the shots were taken only with a Canon EOS 5D Mark III with EF 50mm f1.4 USM and EF 24-70mm f2.8L USM. Light sometimes boosted by the iPhone 5S’s torchlight. Had to pump up the ISO by a LOT. Shadow recovery in Lightroom also made the images work.
There were many other epic cosplayers around too but I just had to get around the exhibition booths and try out some of the games. I even got a chance to try out the Star Wars Battle Pod game which features historic battles in the Star Wars Universe!
And of course, there’s this amazing 3D-printed 1:1 scale BB-8 :D
And here’s some behind-the-scenes courtesy of MizDesert of how I shot most of these images.
