“I love your work”, “Do you though?”

I feel like history is repeating itself, with what I’m about to say. 

Every so often when I send back photos back to people either cosplayers or models with my other photography page, 99% of the time I am rewarded with phrases like, “omg, I love them” or “they are gorgeous, can’t wait to share them”, and I’m both think to myself “wow I did a great job” and “Did I really do a great job?” 

I will admit I do find it hard to handle praise from people, I don’t know why, just something from a young age. I do spend a lot of time looking at photos either through my social media feed, or when I’m looking up the cosplayers wall for what work they’ve already done so I don’t repeat it, I’m introduced to such wonderful array of work, which I at times have thought to myself, “wow, I can’t top that”. I know this shouldn’t and isn’t a competition with other photographers but I have a mentality that I want to get the best photos for someone and if I believe they got better photos from someone else, I would rather they used their photos. 

I do shoot with people whom I regularly know or have become friends with. And more often there praise for my work is always there. But a little part of me always thinks, are they saying that as I’m their friend, we’ve worked together or they don’t want to hurt my feelings. 

I want to believe that if my work needed more work or there was something fundamentally wrong, they can come tell me so I can rectify it. I know my pride will take a bit of a kicking but I rather try and resolve any issues, then my work not being used. 

I’m not expecting all my work to be uploaded by the cosplayer or model, ultimately it’s their decision what they like to upload, but I try my best to make that decision to upload my work an easy one. 

I do get told I’m there favourite photographer which I do question them about cause as previously mentioned, they probably have worked with so many talented photographers and I can’t picture myself being amongst them. 

I’ll also admit that if I don’t hear these praises that I’ve not done a good enough job and that I’ll have to try harder. But at the end of the day, I must learn that praise is good regardless if it’s someone I know or a complete stranger who stumble entirely upon my page and leave a comment of, “I like your work”.

I would want people to continue telling their photographers, especially your favourite ones, how much you like or love their work. Yes, it’s an ego feeding exercise but it’s something which some photographers work off. 

I must learn that praise is a positive thing and regardless whether it’s friend obligations giving praise, or the same people saying the same thing, it’s a good thing to hear and it should push me to be better at what I do. 

Let me know what you think. Do you find praise from family or friends good or do you take it with a “pinch of salt”

Lobo from DC Comics: uhbrutal.cos / photo: story_logic Yes, it was Lobo! I decided on the character just alil bit after I first started cosplaying. I have only been for about a year and a half. Though I love his comics, another reason I chose him is because I am tryin to pick characters that showcase my natural hair. (I was rereading some one day and just had a brain blast to cosplay him) I was alil underwhelmed by the response to him during Katsu. I will say I was lucky enough that some people who stopped me were just as big fans as I was or took some incredible photos I wouldn’t have been able to. I think I was only underwhelmed because when I did Dr.Rockso from Metalocalypse my first convention, I was surprised how many people recognized him. I think I have always known about cosplay? Just not the specific name itself til after high school. I always would see characters from tv shows, movies, or any other type of media and want to dress up as them from a young age. It took me awhile to actually get into it and I’m so glad I finally did Disclaimer: All images and videos used, do not belong to FnC and belong to their respective owners.

Hello Everyone In this episode, Ed Talks about Am I Wrong with this opinion? We discuss some of our views about the cosplay community and see if our views are wrong such as someone not following your work when they’ve message to say they like and want to work with you, photographers unwilling to give posing instructions, cosplayers asking for an editing service which the photographer does not provide and also gate-keeping shooting locations.

Captain America / Mr. Rogers : booty_mk19 / photo: Chstory_logic My origin story is my kids- I started taking them to cons maybe 12 or 13 years ago, and they wanted to cosplay. Trying to be a good Dad, I joined in with some simple stuff- Dr Who or Slenderman, things I could do with stuff in my closet already or spending less than $20 at Goodwill. Then I found I enjoyed it- nothing makes my day more than being asked for a picture or a kid running up to excited because they recognize me. My kids are adults now… but we still go to Katsucon, Otakon, and our local Dover Comic Con every year. I tend to cosplay characters from older media- Gilligan from Gilligans Island, Robin from the 1960s Batman TV show, that sort of thing. So when I saw a comic strip about Thor and Mr Rogers, the idea of Mr Rogers carrying Mjöllnir was born. From there, the Steve Rogers/Fred Rogers connection took over- and not just with me. There’s a fan theory that after Steve Rogers took back the Infinity Stones, he went into public television.
