How will you photographers react to suggestions & request that is not really your style of photographing?
There are times when a photographer has total freedom to do his or her style, but when there are clients involved, it is our job to create the vision of our clients, even if it is different than what we normally would do.
Personally, I don't mind at all to mix ideas of cosplayers with my own. It presents an opportunity to broaden or expand my repertoire. It is fine for me to take photos of the cosplayer's ideas, even if the ideas, in my opinion, are not as good as mine, or even bad. Sometimes the ideas might work better than I thought. Also, at the very least, it makes the cosplayer feel better that I tried their style. Then, I would try to do it my way as well.
