Our recent collaboration pulled together three models styled with makeup, accessories, and costume by Laura Cina.  We shot photos and video with the SONY a7s Mark II and a 35 Millimeter fixed lens, a mixture of LED light panels and some grass-roots, clamp-lamps with a cool temperature bulb to give us a mix of color-cast on the subjects.  We also shot against a black, muslin backdrop to accentuate the makeup work and costumes.  Along with some pretty basic glamour portraits, we had a great time bringing a “Sailor Mars” cosplay to life.  Follow the Instagram of the model who rocked the Sailor Mars photos here.
