I've decided to take a step back from alot of things in my life. The truth is I've fallen out of love with cosplay and I've fallen in love with tango. So I think I shoot more tango than anything else since I've started going to milongas. I get less favs now but I think that should be expected on two fronts.
1. It's a new field and I need to create a new fan base
2. alot of my facebook favs were primed to be favs thanks to the amazing cosplayers I've been lucky to work with or just people will fave their favorite characters regardless of how crappy the photos are.
To me it stings a bit because there's a possible truth in the metrics.
1. I may be pretty spiffy in cosplay photography, but in the grand scheme of general photography, I'm average at best.
2. Tango is a very small crowd and it's not widely sought after
It might be one or the other or even both, but I really think it's the first. If I were to look inward, I haven't grown much as a photographer. Maybe because I was too caught up with trying to network with kick ass cosplayers that I started getting lazy. I stopped trying and ultimately I fell out of love. I think passion is an important thing for art and if you're just going through the motions, it's probably time to sit out and wait for the next dance.
