I really wasn't feeling well during the event (I was recovering from something I caught the week before, though lucky me, it's not infectious unless it bites you...><; ) So I'm actually sorta amazed that I got as many shots as I did. I guess?]]>

Emma Frost - Nadyasonika What a mob shoot. @__@;;; Still, somehow got these without using a long lens....somehow. ^^; I will admit the change in scenery does help (we moved from the balcony to one of the side windows) ]]>

Chobits - Royal Blue Cosplay Heck of a cospaly to find during SDCC. Didn't do as well with the lighting since apparently that area forbade light stands...I think I know who did it. = But yeah, did what I could, flashes on the ground, flashes in someone's hand (forgot who X__X ). Next time, I'm just gonna hold my breath without flashes. It was rather warm up there for all of us involved.]]>

Not as many shoots, but tons of fun for me. I got some swag, saw some sights, and got several autographs. =) Still, I was looking for shoots to do during the con. Found a lot, but it was hard to get the shots. It's hard NOT to be picky about crowds and composition, but yeah...@__@]]>

w/ Kelbi Slingshot Jaggi Gunner - Keikopin Cosplay After Anime Expo 2014, we both were hankering for a good photoshoot where it was appropriate. I haven't done a shoot in Golden Gate Park in a while so that was a good place to do it. There were some brown patches to simulate open fields (with the right angles) and of course trees. I'll be honest, I'd never done a shoot with a slingshot-type weapon (much less one that involves a....moose skull?....but we still had a lot of fun and got a lot of shoots fairly quickly. =) (now for some of the final shots, if we could add a giant monster...that would be sweet. XD )]]>

KOS-MOS - Paprika Mari Xenosaga is a personal favorite from the PS2. I wish I could explain this logically....but I can't. And of course KOS-MOS was my favorite character and I really can't answer why. Luckily we both managed to plan both a day and night shoot. Burned through my memory cards to get these photos. Worth. It. B-) (Yes, my love for this series is Irrational. ^_^;;; )]]>

Ryuko - May Kasahara Guest staring: Satsuki - Chikanny Cosplay Sanageyama - Maan Tao Cosplay Probably the hottest shoot I've done (as in the whole photoshoot was hot...in more ways than one I hope. ^^; ) Still confined to the staircase during that con, but at least it gave me a way to erase the background. =P One thing I'll say about these types of shoots is that you really have to be EXTRA EXTRA careful.]]>

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. ^^;]]>
