Magicka (strobist shot based on a game)

As most people probably know.. gaming is one of my best hobbies.. and sometimes the games seem to be a hit with the kids too..

Take Magicka.. an awesome little top down action wizard game that has four player co-op.

My step daughter got a new bathrobe and she the first thing she did was run into me with it on and shouted "Look I'm from Magicka" the next thing was a that she wanted a Magicka style photo.

So.. we went to the loft.. aka geek command center.. aka small studio and set up some lights and stuff.

Pentax k5 with DA* 50-135 f2.8 at 65mm, f6.3, iso 80 and 1/180


I used two softbox's one left and one right of her (up higher pointing down).. I also got a speed light with a blue gel on it under the right soft box pointing up to her (this would be the magic shes casting glowing.)


A grass and a sky photo added in the back ( Not meant to be that visible just to break up the flat black background), a steam photo added over the lens flair that was added in post to be her magic.
