Dedicated Exploration by ElleBrat Dedicated Exploration by ElleBrat
Getting photos in caves is hard. |D;; The amount of patience needed and fiddling with flashes is crazy, man. (Especially when you and your photographer crawl through small holes because everyone wants to take photos of Link crawling through... The flash umbrella was literally wedged in-between both sides of the cave.)

We needed the flash to be up high, to light both myself and :icontaptaptapitin: (Link). So we tried resting it in a crevice up on the ledge I'd climbed (more like wriggled) onto. That didn't work so well, so :iconlockx: suggested that I hold it up in various places to see if we could find the right spot, and possibly tape it there.

So I was holding it, and then I could almost hear the "Eureka!" moment in :iconlockx:'s head. He told me to cup the light part, so I did. He then pretty much jizzed in his pants, and exclaimed that it looked like I was casting some sort of magic.

We then added three layers of blue colour-correction gels to the flash light, took a few test shots, and I was informed that it now looked like I was holding Navi. Which, I gotta say, I do quite agree with. XD

Oh damn, that's a pretty cool photo there :ohnoes: Sick. I really like how...odd, almost, this piece is, mainly due to the creative composition and lighting. Gotta say it's a really interesting idea having Sheik "hold" the light like that :D I agree, it totally looks like you're casting magic there. Great cosplays! You both look awesome and this photo is great! Nice work to all of you :D

Way too many bugs... I'd go as far to say that in that cave there were ALL OF THE BUGS!

You should see the number of photos it took to get this shot done though.

One of my favourite shots from the weekend

Heh. Indeed. Wish I had power so I could put some more up from different shots.

Also got to love that our shots keep ending up in that Group Album :P

Woooooowww! I'd love to be able to cosplay like this! (Too fat XD). You make this look so easy! And that crevice looks rather comfy :3.

Hey, now! Don't be down on yourself~ As long as you choose characters that suit your type, there's no such thing as "too fat", "too skinny", or (in my case) "god damn my ass is too big"! XD Besides which, I just took a gander at your photos of yourself, and I don't think you're fat at all~

But yeah, that crevice was damn comfy. |D I didn't have too much room to move, but I was able to sit quite comfortably. It was a bit damp (we were in a cave that gets submerged under water when the tide comes in, and it'd only just gone out), but I can safely say that I was a lot more comfortable than Link. :D
