Photography: Different Angle Different Photo

This weekend I did my first Cosplay Photoshoot as the Photographer.  So exciting.  I did it for an Assassin's Creed duo (more pictures to come in future posts).

I wanted to share with people a tip that my dear friend Hannah taught me a few years ago.

It's made a wondrous difference in the shots I love to show off after a convention.

When taking a photo of a cosplay, don't just do a picture from the front,

but using the same pose you can get a great photo but running around them

and taking the photo from a different angle.

In this technical age, we dont have to worry about wasting film,

so ~click click click~ away

Don't forget Angles can also be from above

or from below

Don't be afraid of taking pictures from behind,

It can create a mood you wouldn't have imagined

You end up with completely different pictures, even though it's of the same subject.

I hope my pictures provided a very visual example that backs up this tip.

Thank Sam (Boy Cosplayer) and Sam (Girl Cosplayer) for helping Sammy (photographer) with examples for her blog post.
