Batgirl - Jakuri-nu Cosplay What can I say...I love that area of the con. Nice and quiet (and dark), plenty of things to make shadows, and easy to light (relatively). Of course, we ended up derping through a lot of the shoot, but that's where the fun is. =P]]>

Morgana - Xxfruitcakexx You know how hard it is to turn night into day?....actually not hard. Just need some flashes. She found a spot with some bars so with the lighting the way I set it up, it almost looks like a crypt....a rather well maintained one...but still sorta dead in a good way. ^^; If I were a photoshop kind of guy, I'd probably add cobwebs and other things. Later that night, we managed to get some by the fountain. Almost looks like candle lights. =)]]>

Black Canary - Paprika Mari Batgirl - Sam Wonder Woman - Jazztea Poison Ivy - Lizzie I think I'm getting better with the pin-up style photoshoots. At least the ones we can do in public. =) Glad to be able to take the time and give a lot of coverage to these ladies. B-)]]>

Kasumi Goto - WindoftheStars Cosplay I'm BlizzardTerrak and this is my favorite spot at WonderCon. (yeah, I was waiting to use that joke). Still, there were a lot of stairs on the Citadel and you would find her in dark places unlocking doors and other traps. Plus, Mass Effect is a dark universe, lighting wise. =)]]>

Sorceress - Varnani Sorceress (alt) - KittyCatChi Shot this "early" enough to get some nice even lighting shots near the rocky waterfall. Got some of the background colors to make it more magical. =) Unfortunately, the larger fountain never did that color show it did last year so we didn't stay long at that spot. Still, quiet happy with the results. Usually it's hard to portray magic, especially at a convention.]]>

Vault Dwellers - Varnani + Shii Arisugawa The funny part is that the hardest part of the shoot was getting that darned California flag to cooperate. True, it's a real flag that isn't mine and it was windy....but only sporadically. Lots of swearing on my end, but we needed that darned flag in the shot.]]>

Jasmine - Jakuri-nu Cosplay Two funny things about this shoot. First is that there was actually an almost perfect environment for this character. The second...was that despite the skin, the outfit was difficult for her to move in. Guess less armor doesn't always mean more mobility. ^^;]]>

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]]>
