Bellingham photographer: Comicon portraits 2010

These are a handful of my favorite portraits of attendees and exhibitors at Bellingham ComicCon 2010.
This was a self-assigned project — in the same vein as my Seahawk fan portraits last year.

I arrived about 20 minutes to doors and was let in a little early to get my quasi-studio setup, well, set up. I found a wall near the back of the exhibition area and got three Nikon speedlights into position.

Before long, dozens of costumed comic enthusiasts swarmed the floor, and the place got crowded quickly. I scanned the room and sought out people with interesting or strange costumes for the series. When I saw wolverine, I knew he had to be in it; same for Spiderman and the girl dressed in the kimono.
