What : Vocaloid : Himitsu Keisatsu Project Prelude Shoot
Where : Mother Dragon's Lair - Rooftop
When : August 27, 2012

Character : Hatsune Miku
Cosplayer : ~yefa
Game/Series/Anime/Band : Vocaloid : Himitsu Keisatsu (Secret Police)

Costume by : ~Mimim0n
Wig from : Ouji Hime Shop

Props, Direction, and :camera: by : :iconlenekolightplay:


About the Photo:
Inspired by Cloud Strife's Omnislash animation from FFVII Advent and Ragnarok Online's Gunslinger skill -- Desperado, I came up with this set.

~yefa suggested lots of poses she got from the net but I told her I want a different output for this one. So there, it end up like this~

This is the first time I tried adding mystery stuff on my shot -- since I'm watching Hyouka too much

This is a "Slow Shutter Action Shot"

***no photo manipulation here -- because I don't know how and I suck when I'm doing one.

Yeah I called it Slow-shutter because its below 1/60 (regular bulb's frequency -- 60Hz). I don't really know what's the basis of others when they call their setup Slow-shutter but for me, 1/25 is already a slow one. And taking action shot, I usually set my shutter to 1/100+++.

Anyway going back, I set my shutter that way to absorb colors and light -- since its already dark and my aperture is in the lowest value already. My camera body is Canon 1000D and I don't have that "vivid" settings like Nikon Entry Level camera does --- I am aiming for the sky similar to this one "[link]". But it didn't work out because its already too late. OTL

About the angle, I took the low-angle approach with an UWA lens to make ~yefa looks taller/longer (I really love the distortion of this lens :heart:)

Light setup, this was a three-light setup:
- orange gel at my left
- blue gel at my right
- shoot-through umbrella as main light

Special Thanks to =KiraHokuten and ~Dhenz07 for the light assistance, ~Mimim0n for making this awesome costume and assisting ~yefa as always, *gelaii-chan for photobombing, and *jrjs for the Gangnam Style BG Music. :D


Preparation, Production and the Shoot:
This is my first organized, full production shoot for this year -- It means that I supervised everything from planning, wig selection, how the costume be made, location hunting, set, down to the post-processing of the photo.

This shoot kept me stressed-up the whole month of August because of the cost (sponsoring the wig, details of costume, props, etc for my Commander ~yefa, and buying a new lens for that specific shot that I wanted (UWA) -- which I found useless in the end), planning, production (props making like extra mags and bullets -- which I was able to complete few hours before the shoot), and location hunting (almost cancelled the shoot because the location we are suppose to shoot is still on "for-approval status").

With props, costume, wig, gears prepared, still, some DARK AURA managed to sabotage the shoot. A lot of delays happened during the day of the shoot. I am supposed to get the dark blue sky of 6-7pm but yeah -- Congratulations to that DARK AURA we end up shooting at 10:30PM for only 30mins. XD

Imagine shooting without seeing the frame. No flashlights or anything -- its really dark XD

**still with very few shots, I really love the output.
**this is my pilot Entry for Cosplay Snapshot Project 3

we will be having a Re-shoot of this by December with the rest of the casts +_+

Love the angle, how the guns are caught in mid air and I agree with Zonjh, this is one of the best Miku cosplays I have ever seen as well. Great work to everyone involved. ^^
