It is not every day you get to run into Rey from one of the best Star Wars films made in years, along with Batman, Harley Quinn and other famous comic book and video game characters. But if you ever did, you could probably bet you are actually surrounded by some really great cosplayers. That is what made being at this cosplay photoshoot in DC such a pleasure to be a part of. This was organized by DC cosplay meetup group and it was a great opportunity to get some of the most classic images.
Most photographers might prefer taking images of these characters in some of the locations at the DC Kennedy Center in which the photoshoot took place. It was my first time being there so I did not have much time to check out the area, meet the cosplayers to understand their characters before finally matching them with a backdrop that reflected the nature of who they were portraying. Some photographers may not have care about all that and just focused on creating a great image. Nothing is wrong with that, but I am somewhat of a geek myself and could not pass up the opportunity to make these characters come to life. Clearly, you would never know I took these at the Kennedy center. But I was happy to put these images together for some fantastic and creative people.
