Well folks, its been a year since I started “seriously” taking Cosplay Photographs. I’ve learned a lot over this last year but I still have a heck of a lot more to learn!
As evident from my photos from last year’s MCM along with my revelation at Wigan Comic Con, I’ve been making a conscious effort not to just focus in on the “tight” crop to get around the rubbish backgrounds at a con. This proves to be a challenge sometimes as I like to wander around and its very much a case of wrong place, wrong time but if you’re in the right place at the right time, you can get some amazing photographs!
Almost all of my favourite shots from this year are completely away from the horrible lighting and are either by windows, or outside. The exception to this is my photo of LittleJem Cosplay shown below.
As soon as I saw the armour, I knew I wanted a photo of it because it just looks so awesome. I have to admit, I’m not a League fan, but as soon as I asked about poses and she did the one in the image, I was literally lost for words because it hadn’t occurred to me that the “Shield” and “Weapon” (as I saw them) went together like that. Its a simple picture, but I really like it.
I am naturally bias when it comes to my own photos and its really hard to whittle my favorites down any further but I’ve given it a go so here’s the rest of them (Full album can be found on Facebook here)
