Maru and Seri at Comikaze 2013

While at Comikaze, I met two cosplayers who came as characters from Love Live!: Maru as Maki Nishikino and Seri as Niko Yazawa. I had some free time and wanted to get used to approaching cosplayers for shoots, so I asked if I could do a quick photoshoot with them. They agreed and we met up later once I’d setup my equipment.

Lighting for two people at once using just a single light source was a little challenging, especially when they’re back to back. But it was a good learning experience for me and I got to do a little experimenting with moving the light around.

The windows there had a slight greenish tinge though, so post-production was a little tricky. Sometimes I’m still not sure if I’ve adjusted the color balance properly or not.
