Ohhhhhh, Dear Readers, I CAN'T FEEL MY FINGERS. The polar vortex holds my fair state in its icy grip! Winds howl! Snow falls in droves! But do we quail? Do we falter? NO! We endure... we forge on... and we emerge with PHOTOS! Photos of Heroes! Gods! And an insane photographer at work!
Behind The Scenes: Thor and Loki - Ohayocon 2014
Thor - worthythunder
Loki - Elendriel

Location 1 - Courtyard
We hoped for snow pictures, but unfortunately, it was too stormy to stay outdoors. You can see how strongly the wind was whipping Thor and Loki's hair! (They look like a shampoo commerical! :D)
Location 2 - Drury Inn walkway
Important rule of snow shoots - ALWAYS have a backup location! We grabbed a nearby hallway and lucked into some gorgeous golden-hour light! Thor and Loki began striding, owning it like the epic badasses they are! (While having a rousing discussion about Truth! Honor! Patriotism!)

5 Photo Ideas for a BIG Group!
Keep it from descending into madness and chaos!...Or at least keep it at the NORMAL level of chaos!
A bright morning dawned over the Hills of Hocking. Birds chirped. Tomatoes and eggs sizzled (oh yes, there were tomatoes!) As the sun rose higher, one Hobbit, four Dwarves, and a photographer set out for a (quite expected) journey!
Emma had the fine idea of shooting this Hobbit Lolita group at Hocking Hills State Park. So on Saturday, everyone donned their prettiest frocks, best hiking boots, and sallied forth! We braved many perils such as cliff walls, stone bridges, and probably a spider. Oh, and HEELS.

Light Set Up:
Strobe 1: Pointed at model
Strobe 2: On a ledge behind the model, to get some light on the wall.
I love how everyone looks so fancy in their dresses and I am dolled up in my high school Senior jacket! :P CLASS OF '02 YEAH!

Stay tuned for more photos and Hobbity shenanigans!
Emma's Mama! Thanks for having us! :D
