I have been really ill the last couple of weeks, so I haven’t had it in me to update here or do much in all honesty.

I did however manage to get somewhat well enough to attend MCM Comic Con on Saturday. I have had this planned for a while, and it was a close call as to whether I would be able to attend, but Friday I started to feel better and that I was well enough to go. I didn’t go for the whole day, and I didn’t have it in me to go on Sunday as well.

I haven’t been to a convention since 2018. They were something I loved attending (and still do to a point) but I was getting increasingly fed up with the lack of etiquette that has developed with new photographers attending (and I should add, quite a lot of these are just men with cameras, not photographers). This put me off from attending anymore, which was a shame as I loved seeing & photographing people’s cosplays.

I decided to take my new Interfit Honey Badger Unleashed lights with me, so I could finally try them out of the studio and on location somewhere. I ended up being advised about a cool spot in the carpark of the Excel, and this is where I ended up doing my photos. Away from all the hustle & bustle of the crowds that form around the tree area.

I am really pleased with how these came out, and I didn’t shoot as much as I usually would at a convention, but actually preferred that from an edit perspective, and I was more keen on shooting cosplays I know & like/have interest in.

I hope to be attending in October, and see what cosplays I can photograph then!

Until then, make sure to check out the gallery below!
