Unbridled Cynicism

less bullshit, more often?

Kuroneko/Shironeko

To be written.

Most pleased to have Rurineko ask me to assist with a Shironeko (Oreimo) photoshoot. Eric was a massive help with fill lighting and reflector, and Lewys from Paradox was also shooting.

  • A lovely warm Sunday afternoon in Sydney, perfect for a Shironeko shoot.
  • Had no specific plans, decided to hit up Hyde Park and St Mary’s Cathedral. We lined up the Royal Botanic Gardens as a potential location, but ended up not needing it (and not having time anyway).
  • Were shooting at about 15:00-16:00, sun was still strong but thankfully not so high in the sky as to cause insurmountable problems. Generous use of reflector and fill-flash kept things workable.
  • My 24-70mm is still misbehaving, the output looks great on the LCD but it’s clear that it’s missing focus when you zoom in to 100% later on.
  • Thankfully the 105mm is still rock solid and eye-wateringly beautiful.
