Photography by: Fritz Tentativa
Model/Cosplay by: Liui
Note from the photographer: "Dat game face haha. While I was deliberating which photo to get from about a dozen from this layout, I only had to look at the feet and legs because Liui Aquino he had on that focused, confident, and fearless front plastered like a mask. It's both amazing and frightening at the same time LOL. I can never kick and get that face on, ever, I think. Haha. Lighting: The bluish light behind him is actually a speedlight set on slave, placed on the floor and behind that right (his left) foot, angled , with ROSCO gel 3204 Half Blue CTB under a diffuser. there's another speedlight for the pink background. Two strobes: one as rim light (barn door) then another as key reflected. This explains the shadows both in front and at the back of his leg. -Fritz"
FACT: I am only 5'6, I am shorter compared to the anime/manga Sanji, but then, everything became possible owing to my talented photographer friend, my dream to become taller became reality hahahaha THANKS FRITZ for the angling hahahaha....
