Kuroshitsuji: A Demon's Wish by behindinfinity Kuroshitsuji: A Demon's Wish by behindinfinity
Forsake the future, sacrifice your dreams, while stained with deep despair, elude the past, fight the reality, and never relinquish your nobility. Just like that, Young Master. That is the soul I wish to consume.


:blackrose: About the shoot:
We're not always this seemingly serious, hahah. We had to try several camera setups before settling on one that would show me in the mirror without the photographer being visible. There were some really awkward ones :pointr: [link] but we ended up happy with this end result.

As with several of the other photos from this shoot, I edited the photo to achieve a feel similar to the manga illustrations. I also experimented with a little animation for the candles.

For my visual account of the events of that day (with lots of outtakes and crack photos) please feel free to check my new journal post:
:pointr: Ciel and Sebastian photoshoot outtakes + behind-the-scenes photos


:blackrose: Photo credits:
:iconabaddon13: Ku Ri as Ciel Phantomhive
:iconbehindinfinity: Jin as Sebastian Michaelis
Series: Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler) Yana Toboso
:camera: lighting and photography by Erving Go [link]
:bulletblack: animation and post-processing by me *behindinfinity
:bulletblack: Ku Ri made her outfit, and everything was sewn by hand.
:bulletblack: Special thanks to Ms. Badj Genato for my tailcoat.
:bulletblack: I styled my wig, sculpted the head butler's pin, and gathered and put together the rest of my outfit.

:blackrose: Location:
A lot of you have been asking about the location, and I apologize but the activity organizers and property owner have advised us not to disclose that information. I hope it suffices to say it is not really a place for simply doing photoshoots, and we were just very fortunate to be invited. The place is private property reserved for special occasions. On a normal basis, people cannot just walk in there or take pictures without an appointment or paid booking. [bows] So sorry!


:blackrose: Other notes:
I'm still very much behind catching up with all my messages, especially here. Sometimes the dA message center loads blank for me so I can't keep track of all my notes/comments, espcially on older posts. :(

If you'd like, you can follow my small updates through Facebook :pointr: [link] or send me messages through Twitter :pointr: [link] :)

I can't...express my love for this picture. The only way I can express through words would be to propose to my computer screen, and even then it still wouldn't be enough. There's so much perfect balance and artistic vision behind this it's overwhelming.
