Cowboy Bebop : Stray Dog Strut by Elemental-Sight Cowboy Bebop : Stray Dog Strut by Elemental-Sight
:iconzaidb: as Spike

Shot at Colossal Con a few weeks back- Zaid was an AWESOME Spike and I couldn't help but try to pay some tribute to one of my favourite series with this. We got some fantastic shots and I'm excited to post the rest!

I'm behind the camera, not in the costume.
Additional photos from this set available at my website.

Awesome shots.

My Spike isn't half-bad, but really, with Amanda's amazing skills it makes me look like I'm worth ten millions woolongs. She deserves all the credit for my cosplay looking this good.

P'shaw! You're a good part of the pic you know- if you weren't such an awesome Spike, I'd have a good picture, but not a great Bebop photo. It ain't all me!

Im still a photography noob, and i just have to ask, HOW do you get the lighting and shadows that perfect?

Off camera flash. ^_^
Photo on the left was one flash set along the same line as he was kicking (you can tell by the shadow) which is lighting his shape. I think I have a second flash with a snoot (something to control how much light goes where) pointed on him lighting his body (but I can't quite recall, since I did a lot of this set with only one flash).
Photo to the right is two flashes- one with a snoot and turned down to just brighten up his face (elsewise it'd be in shadow), and one behind him (Again, you can see from the shadow) turned up to highlight his edges and seperate him from the background.
Both are shot at iso 800 to burn in the background, since it was pitch black outside.

I highly reccommend looking up the tutorials Strobist [link] puts up- they're inciredibly informative, and taught me how to use off camera flash. After that, it's just a matter of practice.
