@ Claudillama I see you do use a lot of Dutch Tilts in your compositions. I am not finding them to enhance your photos. It is a good idea to have a purpose for doing such tilts, and understand how much tilt is good, and how much is too much. Generally, I find less tilt usually looks better. Also, having the cosplayer have their feet apart tends to look better, like they are balanced...( Just a general rule or opinion ). You can see a forum I started, regarding these Dutch Tilts here: http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=281092
It might be helpful to see how other photographers use this style.

Agreed. A little tilt can be good if there's a specific reason you're using it to enhance composition and keep a dramatically-posed subject in the frame. However, if you've tilted so much that it detracts from the composition or cuts off body parts (e.g. the toes in your FF69 image), it's time to pull it back just a bit.

Actually, pretty close! But yeah, I am from the Twin Cities yes. LOL

(currently at work, so I can't view the pictures people have posted so far, so I'll have to look at them, later)

But here is something that I recently took. :3

Sereno/Kyreno as Inori from Guilty Crown. :3

Had a fantastic photoshoot yesterday with Alouette Cosplay (evanojutsu here on coscom). The whole shoot was a pleasure, and we got a lot of different looks.

Lots more to come, but I have a few other projects that I need to work on before I wrap up her set.

Awesome photos! Very dramatic, with great lighting. Where did you take them at?

Great shot Nathan! I also just saw your Kitana shoot get featured on a photo website I was browsing through (forgot which though, ^-^; ).

edit: ...that wasn't supposed to be a winky face
