Any photographer will tell you that you always have to be aware of your light sources. Especially with people, the wrong kind of lighting can someone look completely different, usually in a bad way.

This young photo bug took that advice to heart when he attended a cosplay event in China. Realizing that work outside of a studio pits a photographer in a battle with sometimes unpredictable lighting, this man fitted several brackets to his back, each supporting an external flash.

Surrounded by his array of flashes, he ensured himself the ability to catch shadows at every angle. However, in the process he inadvertently created his own character; Super-Prepared Cameraman. And got his photo posted on websites across the Greater China area.

Readers commented that the man looked like a variety of comic book and sci-fi characters from “Doctor Octopus” to “Gundams.” Some even said that a picture from him must resemble Krillin’s Solar Fist special move from the Dragon Ball series.

However, we have to share the feelings of many who saw this picture in simply wondering how his photos turn out.

Even if his photography gig doesn’t work out in the end, he could always use that rig to land aircraft or guide ships through foggy weather.
