I've had this project in mind for a while now. I got the cape made (if you want to make your own, I found the instructions here very helpful. For free hand drawing the hood, I used one of my daughter's hoodies and roughly traced the outline. Make it big!) got the rest of the costume together, then just had to wait for a suitable day to travel to the location.
The weather conditions weren't the best but I managed to get a lot of shots I could use.
My little model was a trooper but did wear out fairly quickly (actually she just wanted to play and explore the forest, fair enough I guess!)
At least one of these photos will be used in the final 6 that I need for a portfolio building assignment.
I feel that I've found my photography niche, now I just need to keep building my skills and hopefully getting some exposure (pun not intended!)
In case you're wondering what my next creative photography project might be, don't worry, I've been planning it for weeks and will start on the costume very soon :)
