, welcome to the madness which is cosplay photography. I congratulate you on your willingness to let us have a shot at your photos!
(Yes, that WAS a pun. Too late to back out now! :P)
You've given us a generous sampling, so let's get started.
- You're doing a nice job picking settings. Many decent photos are destroyed by ugly peripherals, but you're watching the backgrounds. They suit your subjects nicely.
- Colors look pretty good. Bright and well-balanced! Lots of whites and blues, I notice. Are you adjusting the exposure yourself, or using Automatic modes?
- I agree with FiveRings
that you should watch the angles (and don't worry, we've all fallen into that trap.) It's not that you should NEVER tilt the camera, but you're limiting your options. It works here
. However, I'd prefer a more traditional angle for the Inu Yasha group shot
. The cosplayers themselves are creating an interesting line, but the skewed view is fighting it.
- This photo's
my favorite all-around. The overhead angle suits the subjects, and I like the layout.
Good start, and I look forward to seeing more!
- I personally do not like Photoshopping images. I'll leave those critiques toward a more Adobe-inclined photog. ^_^
