I know it's been a while since I posted photos (just recently did a set last night), but just wanted to let everyone know I'm still here and still taking photos of cosplay. I just had to take a vacation from everything for a while, and get my priorities in order. I'm trying to branch out a bit more and do more fashion shots as well as some landscape/street photos as well. This year I took a trip to Japan with some friends of mine:
and had an absolute blast there. It's one of the places I had always wanted to visit and I'm glad to have had the opportunity. So I will probably be posting some pictures of my trip there at some point, but if you want to see some of them now you can visit my other facebook page: [link]
and see some of the shots I've done so far.
Even though I've taken some time off, I was shooting pretty much constantly, so i do have quite a bit of content to go through on top of my normal backlog of convention photos. But due to the cost of traveling to Japan and other priorities, I will be cutting back on conventions that I attend. I honestly haven't really enjoyed my pictures from conventions (as much as location shoots), and would prefer to move more towards location shoots. So I'm hoping to take more pictures outside of conventions rather than during a convention. I feel that the quality and justice it does to the cosplayers is far more worth it than just doing quick hall shots or parking garage shoots. Plus during location shoots, I have much more time to dedicate to the cosplayer and don't have to worry about keeping schedules and being rushed. i don't like rushing the creative process of photoshoots (people who have shot with me know i'm slow like that haha).
With that said i'm probably going to the following conventions this year:
Anime Conji 2013 (probably just 1 day Saturday).
Anime Crossroads 2013
Anyway, I look forward to this new chapter in my photographic life, and I hope to bring you more exciting new images of the fantastic cosplayers I know.
