Back in November of 2015, I ordered a garment called “Knight Hoodie” from an American online shop that sells just this one piece of clothing. I had discovered the product while browsing 9GAG, in a post with the words “want” and “nerdgasm” in the title – my thoughts exactly. Previously, I had acquired an inexpensive black cape from Amazon and had been positively surprised by its quality and sleek appearance. And now, I had a stunning hoodie to match that would eventually start an ongoing self-portrait photography series.
This series isn’t meant to be chronological nor to depict re-enactments of medieval knighthood. Instead, I am using my cameras as a medium of communicating the feelings that extraordinary garments (like this one) evoke in the wearer’s mind.
TL; DR: These pictures aim to capture the feeling of awesomeness that I feel while wearing these medievally-inspired and yet modern clothes. Enjoy!
“Reading in the Fog”
“Fighting the Evil Spirits of the Dark”
Camera settings for the photos varied: picture one and two share ISO 80, f/4.5, 5s and number three was taken at ISO 80, f/5.6, 10s to reveal more detail about the mask. I used a Benro tripod to keep my trustee Sony DSC-HX50v digital camera steady.
