Animania Sydney 2007 – Saturday Cosplay Part 2
Part 2 of the cosplay pictures continues on here. As stated before, with the introduction of the new cosplay competition policy, it turned out to be awesome. Hit the jump to check out the rest. WARNING: Picture intensive post.
Having an entire day to mess around with the flash, I think some of the photos turned out alright, some not so. But deep down I know I could do better than this, even with the crappy standard 18-55mm. Also the position I was sitting for the cosplay competition wasn’t exactly the best. I was sitting about two rows in front of the judges, plus using the 75-300mm, I was too close as I couldn’t get full shots. Though I think when people stand up in the front row, that doesn’t help either.
Well for Sunday, I’ll have to reconsider where I’ll be taking photos from. I wish they had a platform for people with high level of equipment to stand on so they can get clearer shots. Though from where I was sitting, I think using a 28-70mm or a 24-105mm lens would be better for a convention as it allows for the wide angle shots as well as the zoom. I also noticed a lot of photographers with some excellent equipment. If any of you photographers are reading this, what equipment are you using?
Well that’s it for Saturday, hopefully I can get Sunday’s pictures up tonight when I get back.
