Snow White in the forest

Early on a Saturday Morning, I was invited to join in on a very quick cosplay shoot.  Barry, the main photographer, is a friend I met through Instagram while going through cosplay / film photography tags.  Our small chats have helped me lean towards the Mamiya RZ67 when I was debating on which 120 film camera to pick up.  Amber was our model for the shoot and she was dressed as a steam punk Snow White.

This first set of photos were from my Canon 5D III

Barry has a great control of light and knows exactly what he’s looking for when it comes to setting up his shot.  I usually tend to derp around when I take photos by myself, hopefully I can take a few notes on how not to be such a potato during my future shoots. Amber has spent time on both sides of the camera and was super considerate to giving me a few moments to catch a shot even though our time was limited. The Snow White costume also had a ton of detail that we could have easily spent an extra hour trying to capture.

This was also the first shoot I got to bring my RZ67 out.  The waist level viewfinder is such a glorious site, especially when the scene is amazing. The 6×7 format is still tripping me out, the size of the negatives are so intense to work with. The following photos are from the RZ67 and scanned by my Epson V600.


These two can be found on Instagram and I highly suggest you check them out.

    I think everything posted made a ton of sense.
    However, what about this? suppose you were to create a killer headline?

    I am not saying your content is not solid., but what if you
    added a post title that grabbed a person’s attention?
    I mean Snow White in the forest – CatPartyHawaii is a little boring.

    You ought to look at Yahoo’s home page and see how they write article headlines to get viewers interested.
    You might add a related video or a pic or two to get people excited about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it would bring your posts
    a little livelier.

      Thanks for the input! Starting this blog and my Youtube channel have helped me realize I’m pretty bad at writing and speech. I’m hoping to improve over time so hopefully you can put up with my mediocre skills until then. 🙂
