We asked photographer Colin Kelly, "What tips can you offer cosplayers to get the shots that they want?"
"Communication – let photographers know something about the character, especially if he or she has no idea what the cosplay is based on. Be aggressive - get in the photographers faces and let them know you want your photo taken. There are so many people around sometimes cons can be a blur; you won't get noticed. Also, don't congregate in small circles with other cosplayers, it gives the impression that you don't want to be bothered. If you want your photo taken, stand out!"
Are you a cosplay photographer, or do you have a favorite cosplay photographer that you work with? Each week, we'll be featuring a different cosplay photographer, and asking them not only to share a little bit about their point of view, but also a week's worth of their favorite photos. If you know anyone who would be interested, please e-mail us at [email protected] Thanks!
