First proper night shoot! *achievement unlocked* ;D
Jill as Akane Tsunemori
Min as Kogami Shinya
Delia as Main photog (check out her page here)
Cayo and Nimue as Saikangs ❤
This was a really good shoot!! ❤ I was originally just meant to be helping but Delia, who was the main photographer said i should bring my gear along so i ended up taking photos anyway ❤
We started off in the city and shot at a restaurant called iku sushi (where we bought curry udonnnnn ;D ) I didn’t take any photos here but after that we headed to The area we shot Macross/Noiz/Pokemon in….. (again; really need to find new locations omg ;A;;;…. )
While we were walking we got the most accurate insult shouted at us 8′) GO BACK TO THE COMIC BOOK STORE! And rather than being insulted it was like.. GOOD JOB RANDOM PERSON FOR KNOWING WHAT WE WERE DOING LOL…
So we watched Min and Jill eat Udon for a while <333 (btw its really hard to do eating shots with noodles omg… like half the photos i had looked like they were vomiting into their bowls.. T________T )
After that we took some shots on some stairs that had some really nice lights in the background ❤
Then after that we started to head to the other location (alleyway yayyyyy) because it was starting to get dark.
Did i mention the guns look cool?
fucking cool? ;D (i want one so much omg ;-;;; )
But srsly have you looked at these guys faces? omg guys plz stop being so flawless i can’t handle so much amazingness ❤ ;w;;;
I’m so glad Selby and Nimue were helping ;A; otherwise these shots would have been impossible, e.g. here jill’s face is lit by one of our iPhones that was being held *w*
Dark moody shot ❤ @q@
We did have problems before the shoot with wrong gear etc, but it worked out all good in the end (using iphones ❤ ) ;D And this actually worked reaaaaaaaaaaally well!!! >D (also being a human tripod is really painful, not at the time, but the next day.. NOTE TO SELF USE TRIPOD NOW YOU HAVE ONE )
Behind the scenes!

Omgggg this day was way too hot for shooting idk what we were thinking x__x;;
We started off at the perth arena, but since we didn’t start shooting till mid afternoon the sun was very strong (damn australia ;A;)
This made the lighting quite terrible and harsh when not in the shade, so note for future reference to try doing shoots earlier, especially in the summer!
While we were at the arena Sab and i split up with us taking one coser with us, I took Jill and she took Min (:
After that we swapped!
I wish i could’ve got a pair shot on this ledge ;A;;;; but the sprinklers turned on when i was still shooting with min T__T;;;;;; And after it was too slippery and didn’t want to risk either of them slipping off and hurting themselves D8
Reflective glass *-***
Last time i did a pair shoot with these two i failed to get a nice shot of Min solo that she was happy with, hence this time i really tried to make sure i had nice solos of both of them! Although this failed a bit and the shoot ended up a bit one-sided (this is something i really need to work on for shoots that have more than one person, cuz it’s not fair obviously ;A; ) Also working on photos with 2+ ppl in them, and having ALL of their faces in focus :c
Thank you guys so much for letting me shoot with you again! (≧∇≦)/ ♥
I promise i will try to improve so the results are better next time!
Also thank you to the amazing saikangs cuz srsly without you guys shoots don’t happen ;A; <3333
(Warning! Very Image-Heavy post!)
Omggg ❤ Finally up to this beautiful shoot! We found a really amazing location to shoot this, even though the series is getting a bit older now, we re-watched it and had ALL OF THE FEELSSSS ❤ Also omg Perth weather is sooo weird, rainy, hot , rainy, hot @_@@
Omggg ❤ Finally got to shoot with Jill alsooooo after so long ;DD ❤
Prettiest ranka everrrrrrr <333 (edit by min)
Prettiest Manliest Alto alsooooo ❤
We did run into security guards here, but they were very nice! I was really surprised (: We were allowed to shoot as long as we didn’t directly take photos of the buildings, which is good because it was such a pretty area, especially at night when the lights turned onnn *-*****
(edit by min)
In hindsight, i do wish we had started a little bit earlier so we had more time with sunlight, but in the end it wasn’t too bad (: Just as it got a bit dark, the photos are a bit grainier;
Before the shoot, i did a lottttt of storyboarding! (In the early hours of the morning @_@ ) It was fun experimenting and thinking up poses xDD If only i could properly draw what i was imagining OTL ;;; …
But we came up with the idea of Alto and Ranka meeting up, Alto being late (of course) and him congratulating her for something with flowers 8′))
All of the eaaaatingggg <333 (food made by Min ❤ mmmm was so good ;DDD )
These guys are too cuteee ;u;;; all my feeeeelsssssssssssss
And now for all the fun things that happened behind the scenes >DDDDDD
All of the mucking around when you think the photog isn’t paying attention >)
Min being constantly shocked! o: Shes hugging me.. o:
is this is a hand? Or is it a turtle?
Dancing / overall happinessss ;D And introducing G-Chan the reflectorr ❤
This was actually meant to be more of a serious shot where Alto throws the paper plane to Ranka, but once Jill mentioned it, cannot unsee alto about to jump off T_______T
OMG WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO THAT PIECE OF PAPER!!! STAHP.. RANKA PLZ, STAAAAAAHP! DDD8
The adventures of Squishy, Ranka’s phone 8DD
