I love this thread
There are so many great tips and tricks here! Usually I'm just the kind to bring a small pocket camera and take a picture of costumes I find impressive, but since I cosplay myself and is a bit to shy to make too much out of it, I just ask if I can have a picture, shoot one, and leave it at that.
But over the last year I have become much more interested in photographing and I practice a lot, so perhaps I will follow some of these tips and try to make more out of the con photos for Desucon this year. I will be wearing a dreadfully comfy cosplay then anyway (tracksuit and trainers
), so it will be easy to move around at least.
