To tell you the truth Cosplay photography is not fun for me anymore... I doing it for fun, but them BAM. I feel not excited anymore however I can't stop because I still love my cosplay and cosplay photographer.
Also, issue with cosplay photographer, well it's about cosplay photographer in My country. Nowadays cosplay photographer prefer sexy/moe/beautiful/handsome/moe cosplayers instead the really talented cosplayers. The reason why I say this was because, if you're not sexy/beautiful/handsome/moe no wall of photographers will surround them. I've been witness it since around 2 years ago. Well, I'm sure some of you think it's alright. But to me is not and the annoying thing is : They're denial.
On the other side it pissed me off they always feel superior to cosplayers ONLY because they're cosplay photographers. Only because you're a cosplay photographer doesn't mean you can do anything to the cosplayer. Cosplayer is a human. If a cosplayer say no, then accept it. They also have rights to say no.
If a cosplayer reject the pose you directed/suggested that because they didn't familiar/Looks weird/Doesn't suit with character they potrayed. So don't badmouth them if they say no. =/
That's all. Actually I can say more but I decide not because too long and many thoughts I want too share.
