About Me

A collection of images to inspire, which hold some thing that I want to aim for in my own work. Photography in general, Cosplay photography in specific.

The Rules:
1: Always Credit the Photographer (they are artists)
2: Always Credit the Cosplayer (they are artists)

    After this beautiful Artwork by Shilin

    I’m so happy we finally did these Cosplays! ;//; We wanted to do this for almost 2 years but never got the time to work on the costumes… And we still want to build the weapons from the artwork and do another shooting. Hopefully this will be soon/this summer~ <3

    Thank you for beeing my Veloce, Felsi! You’re the best! <3

  3. Jane Judith Jocelyn by Kifir

Beautifully positioned to show off the volume of the skirt. Using the long lens helped create that beautiful bokeh in the background while keeping the full figure in focus.

  4. Ao No Exorcist: night stroll by ~Akusesu

The control of light and color here is spectacular. Using the cool white light (showing blue) from the LED screen brings forward the face of the cosplayer in question, leaving the yellow (indoor) light to seperate the two planes of the photograph&#8212;and, of course, as contrasting colours, give it a bit of pop. The lines of the image help frame the subject and keeps them in the center of attention. Excellent stuff.

    SKYE YOU LOOK PERFECT OMFG

    Look at the richness in these photos. The colors are allowed to lay beauitfully saturated, with only rare areas of extreme highlights. Light is movie-like, layering thinly on top of the cosplayers and perfectly evoking shifting, amorphous moods. A good reminder to me that sometimes a perfectly exposed photograph doesn’t have to be all that bright, and darkness and loss of detail can be good when handled right.

  8. SABER 03 by ~yui930 
Beautiful dramatic lighting, movie like effect and setting, excellent depth of detail on costume

  9. Seishiro Sakurazuka by ~cainplus

careful set up of scene (note the tied on symbols in the trees), carefully directed light (at least one gelled flash from behind, another on the sakura and to camera left for Seishirou&#8217;s face), intense sense of mood through composition and light

Pop’n Music (ポップンミュージック) ~ Kanoko (鹿ノ子)

wonderful use of setting for well-balance portrait, allowing the costume to pop against antique colors, wonderfully lit (softbox light to camera right?)
