Ufu, ufu, ufufufufufufufu-

As a farewell present for my friend Cloverclub Cosplay we did a shoot of her as Marisa Kirisame from Touhou Project. Marisa is a witch that lives in a magical forest. With this in mind, I searched around the Bay Area for a suitable location. Eventually I settled on Purisima Open Space Preserve for the shoot since the trail has large redwoods, but isn’t so dense that all light will be blocked out by the trees. Although the trail is not paved and is a definite hiking experience, the small preserve was very accessible.

I decided to stay light on equipment for the shoot, bringing my Sony A7 camera and a 50/90/135 lens kit and using only available light. In hindsight, I wish I brought a wide angle lens to capture more of the gorgeous scenery there. Perhaps next time.
