Photographing Costumes and Conventions

I could see doing a panel on tips, techniques, and etiquette for doing photography at conventions--whether it's of people in costume, sellers in the dealer's room, etc.--but personally I would have much more fun doing this as a hands-on topic!

The workshop could begin with a discussion of the topics mentioned above, and then move to a couple of different locations to discuss shots and let people take pictures (BYO camera). Sort of like photography-themed travel tours, but short and at Arisia. I would recommend the lobby, the con suite, and the dealers room as possible locations to go with the group, but whoever is leading might have much better ideas.

I would be very interested in this panel but I'd like to have it in the Costuming area and have costumers on the panel. There's a wholly different point of view from the person in front of the camera versus behind it.

Sounds like an interesting panel. If you need another panelist, I would be willing to help (I'm the guy that carries around the massive steampunk camera, but I've also helped do a similar panel at a Steampunk convention).
