About the Image(s)

This is an image I took a couple of weeks ago at another cosplay shoot in an old abandoned industrial site. This is the Joker from the DC Comics Batman series.

I had a single 1.2m / 55" deep octabox that was lit by a Godox Witstro AD-360 bare bulb flash as my light source.

I love this Photo; he scares me but the shot is well made. Maybe the bar in back of his head distracts me a bit.   Posted: 08/03/2019 20:29:25

Thanks Donna - It's actually not a bar, but his cane that he swung behind his back. I'm getting mixed comments on this. Some people love it and others think I should remove it.   Posted: 08/04/2019 14:52:48

Very nice lighting and your model did a good job. I do think that the background is a little distracting, especially the bar that runs diagonally in the back of his neck. After I wrote this I looked up at Donna's comments and it seems we agree.   Posted: 08/04/2019 18:06:54

Thanks for the comments Jim. It looks like I will work on a version without the cane in the shot. This was a location shot in an old abandoned building, not a studio shot, so the "ambiance" of the background does cause some issues.   Posted: 08/04/2019 19:19:53

Very impactant portrait, the fixed view to the camera, the wide and malicious smile... I have recogniced the cane and I think is a good complement for a menacing subject. Green hair, green eyes make up, green eyes, very consistent image, the model was working well in his cosplay realism. Jacket with a violet lining is also a plus for mi. The little part visible of the room cold be darkened to reinforze still more this Comics character.   Posted: 08/07/2019 12:40:40
