Gunner Yuna - Crystallike Summoner Yuna - artisticpsyco (wanted to combine the FF-X and FF-X-2 shoots together...oh well) It really was rather appropriate though. We had a younger, more innocent Summoner Yuna Braska being refined and then the later Gunner Yuna being more confident. =)]]>

New, bigger location. Closer to public transit. And with a much bigger audience. I sense much hope and improvement from this con. =) Unfortunately, I wasn't 100% (mentally or kit-wise) so I did not take as many photos as I thought I would. Still, hanging out with several of my friends was worth it for me going. ]]>

Angel Panty - Cherry Tea Girl The trick (other than braving the cold and the wind) would have to be balancing the lighting. Normally I'd just leave everything overexposed but there were sets of lights in the wings so I'm not only balancing the model and the background, but the wing lights as well. @__@ So we chose to shoot towards sunset (though the sun took it's sweet time setting XP ). Eventually managed to get some shots with the lights. ^^;]]>

Thanks to Bekalou Cosplay for hosting this event. Oh man, I feel old. I remember a few years ago when where was maybe....50 at most? Official count is now around 500+ people. Definitely a mini-convention now...if not a full blown quarterly one at that. @__@; So yeah, I didn't get to do shoot with everyone...or even half the ones who were calling me for shoots. Might have to do scheduled shoots...but this is a gathering. @__@;]]>

Black Rock Shooter - Amano Miharu Did a mini-shoot a few months back (NorCal Fall 2013) but was rushed and didn't have enough flash that time. THIS time, we learned. And this time, I manged to get more and more shots on target and went through more poses. We still had to stop early, but we got more good shots this time than last time. =) Waiting for Round 3.]]>

Thanks to BartBoy for the invite. Arrived late...and posted late. There is a sort of symmetry to this I supposed. ^^; Hopefully these photos will be indicative of my image quality during Night shoot as Fanime (hint hint ;) ) Now if only I didn't bust two umbrellas at the same time....ah well, umbrellas are cheap. Flashes AREN'T X_X]]>

New location at the SFO Hyatt. Fresh new start. Time to see if the convention can dance! =D Still, the con is somewhat easy to get to via public trans so there wasn't much of a night life (photography wise) but that was the same as the old location in SF Japantown. We'll miss the old, but we should also hope for the new. =)]]>

Panty - LauraC Stocking - Black Lotus Luna Brief - CTUShao It is very weird that I only use the parking area at cons somewhat infrequently (with ALA being the major exception). For this shoot, I think it made more sense because....cops....and...ZOMBIES! Well no zombies, but still a cool shoot to do at night. I'll always like the night shoots (even if I don't have 100% control of the lighting.....yet >D )]]>

First time in a long time that I was almost booked solid. Didn't get as many night shoots, but it is ALA (frat con). So I did not get as many hall shots this year. But you know what? I love being booked solid. Tiring? Yeah. But I just like feeling like I am needed. Moving with a sense of purpose and 30 lb. of gear on your body feels much better than sitting on one's backside. =)]]>

KOS-MOS - Paprika Mari IT'S LIKE A DREAM! IT'S LIKE A DREAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 8D *ahem* Yeah, even after all this time, KOS-MOS is still one of my favorite characters ever (sorry ^^; ). Of course Xenosaga didn't get that popular as a series, but when someone says "I'm cosplaying from Xenosaga" I CAN"T REFUSE!!!!!!!!!! So lucky that night everyone was...otherwise occupied so we managed to get some great shots at the pool in the dark (love that blue glow ^^; ) as well as some inside a hotel hallway. =D Hell of a way to start the year.

Ruby - ? Weiss - Blossomberry Cosplay Blake - Jazzberry Yang - Akai-Chan Pyrrha - JestersLabyrinth Cosplay Did this shoot during the wrong time of day, but since there were no backgrounds available at the con anyways, doing in the dark felt like the right thing to do. I had mechanical failure with my light-stand and it got very dark very fast so some of the lighting was a bit off. Hoping to do better at a later shoot with two-stands.]]>

Soraka - Xxfruitcakexx It's really hard to shoot at that green hill with the literally hundreds of people in the background as well as right next you. Still, green is needed so green we shoot in. XP (with some flashes to help with lighting) Got the timing wrong in more ways than one (communication problems on site...totally my fault in this case T__T ).]]>
