Stormtroopers on Patrol

An often overlooked demographic of photographers are a close cousin to the street photographer. They are comic con photographers, or, often, cosplay photographers. These folks lug around their cameras to massive pop culture events, like the “Star Wars Weekend” where this photo was taken. This produces some very unique photos, to say the least! Often the costumes created by attendees of comic cons and similar events are very elaborate, and their wearers are more than happy to pose and show them off! But some of the best photos are more candid in nature, like this one. I love how these stormtroopers might as well be marching on patrol on the forest moon of Endor. It’s a great shot! Much thanks goes to photographer Gordon Tarpley for publishing it under Creative Commons!
