This meet up was similar in nature to the last one I went to in that a bunch of Cosplayers get together, have photos taken and just have a good time.
I had a vague Idea of what Cosplay to expect through it being organized on Facebook and one of the characters was going to be Edward Kenway from Assassin’s Creed. Part of the job of being a Cosplay Photographer is finding suitable backdrops and locations – The evening before this event I remembered about the ruins of an old roman fort near where the meet was going to happen so I asked the Cosplayer and he was up for a mini shoot there
I’d recently purchased a Yongnuo YN-565EX II Speedlight and I wanted to experiment with it so I was using it for some of these shots for fill light – Be it for better or worse.
Here are my shots along with one of the same Cosplayer from the general meet location which makes much better use of the Flash
