After waking up bright and early on Tuesday morning, it was time to head in to Brisbane for a photo shoot at 8:00am. I didn’t expect there to be so many people in the city on my walk from Central Station to Brisbane’s Botanical Gardens. Still, I’m rarely walking through the city at 7:30am.
The shoot was for a cosplay shoot with Ashleigh, but with a more summery vibe, than full on cosplay. A nice enjoyable twist to the character. In truth Aries was an Anime character that I hadn’t heard of until I did some research after the shoot. Which is reverse to what I usually like to do. I usually like to do the research before the shoot, so it gives me a better idea of possible locations, poses and to aid with setting the overall vibe to the shoot.
With the assistance of Sam, we spent a couple of hours shooting in different locations around the gardens. From climbing trees to drop rose petals, to climbing trees myself to get overhead shots. Without the assistance of Sam, I have to say some of the shoots would not have been possible, nor have worked out as well. She also came in handy for another way, a swag of Behind The Scenes shots that she took while Ashleigh and I were otherwise occupied actually shooting.
Below are some of the final shots from the photo shoot.
