    Had the opportunity to spend the past weekend as a photographer for a cosplay convention just outside of Portland, OR. Unfortunately most of the work was in low light indoor panels but I spent a few hours of the first day outside and shot during the cosplay competition. I'm not used to taking pictures of people, but was a great experience! Just thought I'd share some of the fun!

    Everything shot jpeg per request of the staff...

    Any tips to fix this last one?? Accidentally shot at f/2.0 a little out of focus towards the bottom...

    Those photos definately do not show a person who's "not used to taking pictures of people". I guess what I'm trying to say is that these are great portraits. Having said that, I personally prefer the outdoor ones, not only as far as image quality, colors etc go but also composition wise. Nice work :thumbup:

    Nice. Always so much too shot at these!

    Was this a paid gig?

    Thanks Nick! I completely agree, was stuck in one spot while they were on stage and that dumb speaker kept getting in the way hahaha

    Not paid but I thought it was worth it for the experience I guess... I got to jump to the front of all of the lines and no admission fee :)
