Due to the heat, lacking a badge, crowds, etc etc...I wasn't able to roam the hallways like I usually would during conventions. I basically planted myself in the West Hall tunnel and stayed there calling people for shoots... ...if you want lots of photos of people, bad strategy. Honestly, I don't really like going to this convention due to the lack of ability to do my work at the con. Lots of restrictions in terms of who you can shoot and where. Not to mention that elitist atmosphere is very prevalent here.]]>

Misato - Manateas Art Oh man, due to a huge snafu with my bus ticket, I was forced to quickly book a flght to make it to this shoot during AX. Couple hundred bucks, flight delays, and luggage quarantine later, I got to the con very late. I got really lucky in that I still was able to do this shoot. @__@;]]>

Borderlands Photoshoot 2014 Gaige - SheikChan Cosplay Mordecai: VI Deathtrap: Drcane Scooter: Jeremiah S. Handsome Jack: Evel Fett This ain't no place for no heroes~ This ain't the most hospitable location to shoot but it was close enough that everyone here could make it to. Oddly enough, except for probably Deathtrap, I had the most trouble marching to the location due to the rough terrain. Was it worth the walk? Big time! Definitely fun derping around and getting some striking lighting, but also the colors from all the weird graffiti and "modern art masterpieces" helped too.]]>

Cosplayers: LimitlessEdge Cosplay Thor - Lyn Captain America - Lee Nice day, but I forgot how windy that area can be so I got some grit on my lens so I caught some "sunspots" on some of the sunny shots. Had to restrict (and cull) a lot because of it. It got a bit easier when we did that "nighttime fight" portion. You would think it was sunny that day (and it was...for SF) but the wind made it real cold for everyone. BTW: First time I used my Nikon D7100.]]>

basically just accepted almost any ones that were during a time slot I didn't fill yet. Then when I arrived that Thursday night, I took a look at my calendar and realized that everyday except Monday (thankfully) I has shoots from 11 AM to 12 AM straight. I have to say, I do not recommend doing that both for your health and also for your convention enjoyment. ^_^; So yeah, I hope fewer Hall Photos is ok. ^^;]]>

Astaroth - AoiKatori Asmodeus - Shiru Chuku Cosplay Late in the day for all of us, so we decided for an indoor shoot for this one. It was a pain trying to time it right so that we didn't have people in the background (with some success but not always). Anyways, the one thing my camera has trouble with is auto-focus on body-paint. So the focus is sometimes a little off on some of these shots. Luckily I had several memory cards left so I just went nuts with the shutter. Didn't help me when it was time to sort though. X__X; Enjoy some demon chicks? =P]]>

Sonico - Neeka Cosplay Who said bed shots can't be cute? =P I'm not sure how it got to this, but we were both tired and just wanted to take it easy that Fanime night. Still, we had fun derping around with various things in the room. Usually bedroom shoots are stressful for me since I have more things to keep track of like posture. This was...fun. =)]]>

Momoka - Cold Candle Not exactly how I arrange photoshoots with cosplayers, but we do work together another day during Fanime so I guess it's fine? ^^; Still, I'm glad I'm getting better at lighting my shots indoors. I still have a few mis-focused shots and some shots where one flash is more powerful than the other. I'm just not used to confirmed spaces for shoots (and yes, even a room as "big" as this was still confined for me). But at least it's an improvement.]]>

Panty - HezaChan Chance encounter. Had to do this (even though she did flip me off XD). I also happened to have an airsoft prop on me that was about the same size (hur hur hur) as Panty's "Backlace" pistol (and it was colored and shaped (oh my~) like it would have been in this outfit. =P Probably the last free moment I had during the convention.
