Photography by Roberto Blake Outlaw Image Studios Cosplay Photography is a lot of fun and a great opportunity to meet new people and learn quite a bit about model photography and get some very unique shots for your portfolio. Yesteday i was part of the new fireboy and watergirl game cosplay and had some amazing shoots. However many people struggle with or question what the best lens to use when doing these types of photo shoots. Ultimately Cosplay Photography follows the same primary rules as portrait photography. Generally speaking a 35mm, 50mm or 85mm prime lens is ideal for portrait photography and used by many Cosplay Photographers for their shoots. While not as versatile as Zoom lenses fixed focal length lenses like these have several advantages. For one thing they are more affordable ranging from -0 typically, while also providing a maximum aperture of either f/ 1.4 or f/ 1.8 which is very good for low light and shallow depth of field.

The other very good thing about using these lenses is their overall speed and sharpness is very good when auto focusing since the camera does not also have to readjust and also calibrate the focal length of the lens. While not being able to zoom means you will have to work harder to position yourself for the shot you want to take, it can also force you to be me creative and pay greater attention to your overall composition.

Due to having a higher maximum aperture, prime lenses also mean that you can shoot and a lower ISO and as a result have considerably less overall noise in your images just like i did for destiny 2 raid boost, eve when shooting indoor or in low light without using a flash. This allows you to produce photos with greater sharpness and detail that still look very clear and will require little to no work in post production.
