The rest of the weekend involved me attempting to find friends to photograph. A lot of them were running around in preparation for the big contest. The prep for prejudging and the actual show caused some difficulties finding them till after everything finished. I also feel like my time management could have been done better. While I did manage to shoot a handful of my friends, there were many people I missed. Internal crying occurs when I finally saw all the great cosplays everyone else had the chance to photograph.
This whole problem developed from the way I started shooting. There are almost no general hallway shots anymore, I have started pulling off to the side in order to avoid the crowds or find some decent lighting. It means the people meeting with me get a lot more attention at the cost of not running into others. I really enjoy meeting everyone during these cons so there needs to be an adjustment to how I manage my time.
