Photographing a masquerade is always difficult due to the speed of the event, having only one chance to get it right constantly changed lighting and a whole list of other problems. I think I was able to get such good results this time thanks to hiring out Nikon’s 24-70 2.8 lens. I’m defiantly considering buying one the 2.8 is well worth the extra money.
I also did all the post possessing my self taking me over a week to do with is why this post is so over due I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them. With Auchinawa Scotland’s biggest anime convention only a week away expect more masquerade photos soon.
