Pokemon Go Photo Project - Capturing the Phenomenon

Veröffentlicht am

When I started thinking about how to capture the phenomenon, I quickly realized that crowds wandering around staring at their phones is obviously not a spectacular thing to
shoot. So I decided to take photos of cosplayers instead that also blends fiction and reality.

Pokemon Go Photo Project - Capturing the Phenomenon

  1. 1. Capturing the phenomenon – Photo Project Ingrid Ihász, September 7 2016
  2. 2. 2 Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard of the game. Pokémon Go is the first real success story of the use of augmented reality technology, which blends the digital and real world together. In just a few days since its July 6 2016 launch, it has become a worldwide sensation,overtaking established applications in daily active users. The combined effect is part bird- watching, part geocaching,part trophy-hunting, with a heavy dose of mid-1990s nostalgia.

  4. 4. 4 When I started thinking about how to capture the phenomenon,I quickly realized that crowds wandering around staring at their phones is obviously not a spectacular thing to shoot. So I decided to take photos of cosplayers instead that also blends fiction and reality. I asked my friend Andor, who’s been an active member of this scene for years, to help me find models. I created an inspirational board on Pinterest to collect mood pictures and ideas for the photoshoot. NIKON D5500,Tamron 24-70 mm (70 mm), ISO 200, f/3.2, 1/125 s

  6. 6. 6 I chose Aquincum Military Amphitheatre as a location, which is just the perfect ’Pokéstop’ for a photo shoot with its ancient structures and huge spaces. It is the greater of two amphitheatres in Budapest.It is located in the Obuda district, just north near the Danube river. It was built around 145, during the reign of emperor Antoninus Pius. In summer afternoons, it has decent shades ideal for outdoor portrait photography. As you can see in the werk images it was a sunny day that created high contrast between light and dark areas, one of the worst enemies of the photographer.

  7. 7. 7 Cana Aries and Cornu Asleehr are a cosplayer couple dressed up as Pokémon trainers, namely Team Magma Grunts for this photo shoot. In general, cosplayers are not professional models but they are used to being photographed at Anime Cons. They create their outfits themselves with matching makeup and wigs, and they are proud to be captured in their costumes. Aries and Cornu, of course, also play Pokémon Go.

  9. 9. 9 I always start the post processing of my raw images in Lightroom. I have a look at the histogram and correct exposure as well as blacks and whites if necessary. After that I use the crop tool if needed and find a nice balance between shadows and highlights while adding contrast to my images. I use clarity, vibrance and saturation with caution to achieve the desired result. I always use lens corrections at least by removing chromatic aberration. Sometimes I also play with the HSL sliders to enhance particular colors. The next step is sharpening and noise reduction. I also use graduated filters and the adjustment brush if necessary. After that I turn to Photoshop where I often choose the clone stamp and the spot healing brush tool for retouching and removing unwanted objects. I use several plugins, e.g. Portrait Pro, NIK Collection and Topaz Collection. NIKON D5500, Tamron 24-70 mm (70 mm), ISO 200, f/4.5, 1/400s

  11. 11. 11 Panning is a great technique to demonstrate the dynamics of running. Shutter speed of 1/60 sec creates the illusion of fast motion. Thanks to the small aperture size structures of the Amphitheatre remained visible in the background and serves as a gym for a Pokémon battle.

  13. 13. 13 Shot in bulb mode I used light painting to create Pikachu’s electric attack. The angry face, motion blur and thunder effect were added in Photoshop.

  15. 15. 15 Shot with backlight, I used a circular reflector to light her face that also created nice reflections in her eyes. The lightning effect was added to the Poké ball in Photoshop by using lens flare and special brushes. NIKON D5500, Tamron 24-70 mm (70 mm), ISO 400, f/4.5, 1/1600s
  16. 16. 16 I used bulb mode and a light painting brush to create this image. The „smoke”was slightly edited and recolored in Photoshop. NIKON D5500, Nikon 14-24 mm (14 mm), ISO 200, f/16, 13s

  23. 23. 23 I created this image to demonstrate how much someone has to walk to ”catch them all” and also to create a player crowd out of two people. I used a tripod to shoot the images from the same angle and merged them in Photoshop. Small aperture size was set for deep depth of field. FUN FACT: Gotta catch 'em all! is the English slogan of the Pokémon franchise.The most noticeable reference to the catchphrase in the anime was introduced in the first episode by the main character Ash Ketchum.
