Comic Con HDR Cosplay Fusion

Everyone loves Comic Con and everyone (okay most people) love HDR. So why not combine the two in a fusion of cosplayers, HDR and compositing. Here are a few of the photos I’ve combined so far.  I love the work that Joel Grimes and others have done with HDR portraits and I’ve only seen a few cosplay HDR combinations out there.

See the full Comic Con HDR Fustion gallery.

These were all taken from the Minneapolis Wizard World Comic Cons from 2014 & 2015. Looking forward to possibly visiting some of the other sites like Chicago, Madison in 2016 and maybe even the San Diego Comic Con someday.

The biggest challenge with using the Comic Con photos is the lighting. Lots of overhead lights beaming down at bad angles. You’ll also need to adjust the color temperatures and exposures of the two photos. In a studio you could control the light much better of course. It’s just maybe harder to get a whole bunch of characters assembled in one place like a Comic Con convention.

I plan on combining and sharing a  more of these. Check out the gallery here Comic Con HDR Fusion Gallery.
