Shana III - Solitude by hexlord Shana III - Solitude by hexlord
There is a solitude of space
A solitude of sea
A solitude of death, but these
Society shall be
Compared with that profounder site
That polar privacy
A soul admitted to itself --
Finite infinity.


- Emily Dickinson

Awesome shot. Love the placement of her in that spotlight. The dead space around her adds to the bleakness. And has already been said she conveys the mood of lonliness so well. Makes you want to reach into the picture and hug her.

Nothing highlights a cosplayer than a well placed, low power overhead light source :nod:

Gaddamn I love your composition!!

Please excuse me in advance if, when I'm finally able to tag along, I bring a notepad and a pen for notes instead of a camera. :P

Great photowork, captures the feelings very well. It looks like you had to set up spotlights too?

I just remember Shana being very isolated this early in her life, even Wilhelmina had to keep Shana Emotionally detached. LOL, and the background of why she loves Melon Bread so much.

Also very brave cosplayer to wear this version of Shana, props to her too.

Hi there, thanks for your comment!

Actually the whole setup was totally done using natural light. I was doing a pre-shoot recce of the location and discovered that due to the timing of that day, there were a few spots where the light shines in.

I then tell her to sit down there and to relax, she's a natural at this. The mood conveyed by her expression led me to name the photo as titled.

Haha, she's pretty game for anything, which is nice. :)
