DC Cosplay Photo Shoots (Others’ Photos)

The cool thing about going to a DC Cosplay Photo Shoots meetup is the opportunity to work with other photographers. I am so used to shooting and/or editing my own photos, that it was refreshing to just go with the flow and let someone else direct the action for a change. I am very impressed with the photos that resulted. These are some talented folks!

The meetup was at the National Portrait Gallery in downtown Washington, DC. It provided a lot of cool backdrops for pictures.

Here are two photos by Carlos Mazariegos. He did a really wonderful job with atmospheric filters.

Carlos also did some amazing composite SFX edits! This is such a dramatic photo.

This isn’t actually a photo of me, but rather of Maggie Cosplays, taken by Tony Brown. However, you can see me posing in the background. I think the inadvertent photobomb is pretty funny. Obviously my pose is the one that led to Carlos’s previous photo.

Dan Arango did a beautiful job playing up the contrast in these pictures.

Dan Rachal got really deep blacks in this shot. I love the shadowy look.

I like the pretty sepia tones in these two photos by Munchkin Photos.

Justin of Rich and Strange Photography did a lot of interesting work with light.

Justin noticed that the lights on a staircase looked like Victorian streetlamps, and suggested posing with them. The results are very cool.

I also worked with Justin by posing on a wrought iron staircase. The walls were very plain white in the stairwell, but he worked the angles to ensure an interesting composition.

Jason of Jay’s Fine Art Photography did some lighting magic in a very dim stairwell.
