In my previous post, I wrote about what it was like walking up to new people along the street for their photograph. This time I was invited to be a volunteer at Super Nova in the Gold Coast by my friend photographer Steven Yee. Steven was kind enough to offer me the opportunity to take part in taking photographs of the cosplayers and charters at the pop culture convention.
Here I was able to capture pictures a variety of different people and characters, Albeit the fact that the convention centre was an ideal photographing location, and also we are not dealing with professional models here, it was still plenty of fun and a great experience to have the camera in front of so many different people.
Some of the costumes were really impressive, I have never really been into the pop culture world, however, I do appreciate and respect the time and effort some of the people have put into, to make the outfits the way they did.
It was nice to be able to photograph many will'ing people at the expedition. This experience helps me build my confidence in asking everyday people for photographs. I just wish that I am able to walk up to people in every day street life for pictures just as easy as this.
Stay tune for more pictures coming after Sunday's (Tomorrow) event.
