Asuka and Rei

Tashi Cakes at ALA 2014

While at ALA, I got the chance to do a few mini-shoots with Tashi Cakes and her friend as swimsuit Asuka Langley and Rei Ayanami from Evangelion.

Fortunately for us, we were able to get a few pictures at the hot tub while it was (mostly) empty. It was in the shade too, so I avoided dealing with direct sunlight. Later the next day, we also gave a night shoot a try at the hotel pool. Since the area was lit with green and blue, I wanted to see if I could get some nice pictures out of it in the background. I only had my flash to provide fill, and I do like how the lighting turned out, although in hindsight I should’ve tried a couple shots with brighter flash power.

Camera: Canon 6D with 24-105mm f/4L IS
