Okay. I’m willing to walk around a comic-con or the MIT Flea with a big SLR and a flash head and a battery grip in order to get the best photos I can get. But THIS guy! This is a sign of true dedication:
Breaking it down for folks who aren’t photo geeks: he’s got a studio-style umbrella flash rig, mounted to a backpack and fired via a radio remote mounted on his Canon EOS 40D. My hat’s off. Though I have to think that this lighting rig made candid shots a bit of a challenge.
I wonder how frequently people stopped to ask him what character he was supposed to be?
