Amidala - Alexandra Lee Studios

For nine months I watched Amanda put blood, sweat, and tears into this cosplay, and when the day finally came to photograph it I knew I had to get every detail.

The Queen

I wanted to make sure the closer up photos very clean and simple. However, I also wanted to create a couple of composite shots that gave her a more queenly look. So we decided to shot on a plane fashion gray paper backdrop and then I would composite a canvas texture on top of it. I wanted to shoot her with very soft light, so i used a photec softlighter with my alien bee along with using natural window light as fill. All in all I' very pleased with the outcome.
