I was finally able to shoot an Anime project.. after quite some time. This seems to be a popular one these days - Madoka Magica - I had this idea sparked from the colors of the cosplay - Gold, lightly lit background was needed!

This location will remain unnamed due to the lovely experience we had with the authorities of the place that I had permission to shoot at. Truth be told though, and this is no lie.. I clicked the button a total of 3 times before I had to wrap it up.

Not bad for a 3rd click?

The guns were stood up by chicken wire that we stuck up the tubes of them and made 3 little feet for each of them. I shopped out the wire :)

Hmm. Not too difficult to figure out the location, actually. You might as well have named it. The iconostasis is unmistakable.

Yeah.. it really isnt a secret anymore right now.

Over a year ago when I posted this, it was - confusions were settled with the church and we were allowed to post the image :)

It could only possibly be a Greek (from the lack of a soleas in front of the iconostasis) cathedral (because of the eagle she's standing on; that's really the bishop's spot), and you're in Atlanta, and the Greek cathedral in Atlanta is shaped like a flying saucer, so a totally modernist iconostasis is only to be expected...

It never really was a secret in the first place.

Photo and composition is really good, lighting as well just perfect. Congrats with DD and that's cool that You do such a big job.

But contrast of church and little magic anime girl character looks just absurdly, sorry if that sounds obnoxiously. And as Orthodox myself I really don't think any church can be suitable for _cosplay_ shooting.

Perhaps you should ask the sky wizard what he thinks about it?

Oh, already did, he didn't give a fuck.

I think only about feelings of religious people. Everyone should respect feelings of other people, and I haven't said something offensive, I just said what I think about location, though I made a compliment for photo itself and the work of photographer and cosplayer.
