Getting awesome photos of you in cosplay is actually super easy! All you need is a friend, a DSLR (borrowed or your own) and a lens with a fixed focal length! Thanks a lot to my amazing model Naraku for helping me with this tutorial!
Check her out on FB: https://fb.com/NarakuCostumes

My equipment was a Canon 6D and a Canon 50mm/1.2f lens, though Canon T5i (700d) and a 50mm/1.8f does the same job as well for example! No need for expensive equipment. You can even borrow or share it with your cosplay friends!

Additionally I use Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.
The location was Druidenhain in the Fränkischer Schweiz, Germany.

Let me know if you have any questions! 🙂

    How did you copy the settings in light room and paste them onto another photo? I’ve been trying to figure that out and it’s been a struggle.

    Thanks for showing that photoshop's not an evil tool. Too often, I get comments from people on my pictures that say "That looks photoshopped" and I wonder what the big deal is. So what if it's photoshopped? That's how we can be creative with lightning, corrections and other fun stuff. I don't understand why it's considered "bad" to some people when photoshop is used. It's like they just discovered a big "secret" and want to blurt it to the world. "This girl uses photoshop to enhance her pictures!"

    Interesting. looks like a lot of the vid was dedicated to photo editing more than the actual shoot.

    The 50mm 1.2 is really a gem that everyone should have! If I had to choose only one lens to use ultimately I would pick it (aside from the 70-200 2.8 IS L)

    I really respect you. I know you've won one of Blizzcon's contests so there's no debate around your cosplay crafting skills, etc.
    But comparing a 3.4 thousand dollars setup to one that barelly reaches 800 is…. You know….
    And it's not easy taking pictures…. at all … Taking a great, quality picture is a labor of dedication, discipline, etc.

    I personally won't open the aperture all the way open but just slightly close since usually lens isn't its sharpest when open all the way

    This was so helpful!!! Thank you! Especially telling us what equipment and software you use! 😀 I really appreciate it!

    Is there any chance you could someday do a video on how to be the model for the cosplay during the shoot? Stuff like lighting, posing positions, angles, do's and don'ts etc. Anything that might help if you don't have an experienced photographer to guide you 🙂 x
