The problem of backgrounds clogged with people is a common one when it comes to capturing photos at conventions. Unless you set up off site at a hotel or find a quiet space around a convention center (which is possible), you almost have to relegate yourself to getting photos filled with exhibit hall aisles and the people in them. There is a technique for working around it, as Jen and John at EPBOT have learned.
They took the photos in this post among attendees at the recent Metrocon. These weren’t taken in a studio with a backdrop. They put the spotlight on the cosplayers as they roamed around the convention, less all the crowd behind or round them. It’s not a brand new technique, as Jen pointed out in her post, but it’s new to them and it’s new to me. EPBOT read and studied strobist methods and replicated what they found out with a mobile set-up.
