Question Photographers?

Ok, I'm working really hard on my costume and wondering: who is going to be taking photos? I know that Maboroshi at Risingsun.net is not going to be there this year, which creates my main concern... whose left?

spoonfeeding:
(a) are you concerned about this as well?
(b) are you going to be taking pictures at AWA-con XII?
(c) if you are taking photos, where are you going to be most of the time? (that way it's easier for cosplayers to find you)

I think Eurobeat King mentioned he was going to be there to take pictures and he's really awesome. But i am unsure of any other photographers that are going to be there, but i am CERTAIN there will be more.

I think Deathcom was there last year. They may return this year (i wasn't there last year, but i looked on their site and they had AWA 05 there)

Kevin Lillard seems to frequent AWA. (fansview.com) I think he sets up a photo place where you can go and get your pic taken for his site

Don't stress so much about the picture-takers! There are...100s of people there with cameras you're certain to get your picture taken and most of the time, they may be really nice. Sure, the professional cameras of con photographers always do great, but other folks can take a pretty nice shot too.

Well, the only problem with that is you have loads of people take pictures and only about 5 of them appear online... and only 3 of them look good. Or atleast that's what happened to me last year. XP

well the question is do you want to cosplay to have fun or is your goal to have photos taken to have them put online? If that is your goal find Keven's table thats a guarentee. If you want pics for yourself (like me) then half the fun is finding them...(which i can never do) For those i say find a friend with a camera and get them to take the photos.

yeah. always have your own camera and that way you can get all the shots you want. Take a friend that's willing and hold your own photoshoot during the convention or something.

oh, and since i only mentioned three photographers, lets just say only those three will be there. That is still only 3 pictures online (i think EBK may take more then one shot of cosplayers on occasion. But Kevin basically always puts only one on his site unless it's a single shot and then you're in a group shot. I'm unsure of how many Deathcom puts on their site of the same cosplayer)

one thing to remember, use a variety of poses...always have more then 3...because, that way, the ones that do end up online will be all different shots.

but i can understand how you feel that none end up online, but that is why you have your own camera and upload your own pictures

Whelp, the wedding photographers I meantioned will be doing photos after all. Micheal Iacca's getting his site up, and my good friend Magus already has one: www.croneseraphim.com. There's also WashuOtaku, and LionBoogy. Trust me, you'll get enough attention.

As Jessi-chan said, I'll be at AWA and taking lots of pictures. Since I won't be cosplaying, I'll just be walking around in normal clothes, taking pics. I'm not too hard to find, and if you do see me, feel free to come up and say hello. I'll be happy to take your picture. Also, if you're concerned about how the pictures turn out, after I'm done taking your pictures I can show you them to makesure they turned out okay. (that goes for anyone who poses for me when I do solo pictures.)

well this is a relief. I just hope my costume is "cool" enough to have pictures taken of it. The reason that I was worried is because my costumes never last longer than a day... I'm too hard on them. Like, my costume from last year is pratically destroyed to the point that it would be easier to start over from scratch than to fix it. And since I'm spending so much money on this years costume that I don't want to to be a waste.

Don't get me wrong though... I know I'm going to have fun. I always have a blast at AWA.

Haha no, I am heading home right after DragonCon and posting the pictures. Then I'll head BACK to Atlanta for AWA when those 3 weeks go by quickly..

If someone asks me to take a picture, I usually will take a picture or two unless i'm really busy at the moment or I'm doing something like taking a breather (or getting a bite to eat.) So if you see me taking pictures, wait til I'm done with the current cosplayer and then come up and say hi.

I also want good pictures, but not because i seek attention or anything. It's just that i don't normally have enough good pictures of my costumes (see my gallery...it sucks!) I'll probably be Yuffie (KH1) all weekend unless i decide to change into something else
