This is my first time attending an event and posting for critique. It was SOY Cosplay at NP.

Saw this posing for pictures, before i can get near her, she walked away. This shot was taken when she was walking away from the photographers and she spotted me....:bigeyes:

I have added warm filter to the surounding (except the subject) to make the photo look "smoother". Also to reduce the disturbing colours.





Taken at below settings:
Lens 50mm F1.8II
Aperture F 2.0
exposure 1/250
Exposure bias +0.3 (forgot to change back:bsmilie:)
White Balance Auto

C&C on this newbie pls. Thanks.

It's a candid snapshot, not much to comment on. Next time ask the subject if he/she can spare a few minutes of their time and take a proper portrait. Then post up here for critique.

very cluttered, too cluttered to make this a good photo in any sense

cosplayers are usually more than obliging to pose, from what i've heard. after all, it does take a certain type of guts to dress up as your favourite character, so what was suggested in the last poster before me would more likely than not, work. :) that way you could have a better background, better lighting conditions, better composition, better everything.

grabbing a candid is usually only interesting if there is something special going on - a look? isn't much to work on, hope you catch my drift.
