Photos taken at a nighttime cosplay photoshoot held on December 6, 2014, at the San Jose Convention Center. I didn't get a whole lot of shots this time around, but I have noticed noticeable improvement in using flash, while still having room for even more growth in that area.]]>

Photos taken at the NorCal Fall/Winter 2014 Cosplay Gathering, held on November 22, at Central Park in Fremont, CA. Yes, the Fall and Winter ones were combined this year. I didn't get as many photos this time around thanks to the rain through the morning, but we still had a great time!]]>

Photos taken on Day Two of Japan Expo USA 2014, held at the San Mateo Event Center on August 23. It was the only day I attended the convention due to the time and expense of the CalTrain commute thanks to its new location. It was a low-key con like last year, but the mix of indoor and outdoor facilities at the new location made things a little more interesting, and having food trucks in addition to event center food was a good touch.]]>

Photos taken on the last day of the Northern California Cherry Blossom Festival and Parade, April 20, 2014. Most of the photos were taken before the parade around San Francisco Civic Center, where cosplayers gathered and had their contest for 2014 before getting ready for the parade itself. Thanks go to Kei Ta, Bart, and Wendell along with others for stepping up and making sure the cosplay portion of the parade took place for 2014 when it looked like it wouldn't.]]>

These shots were taken at a cosplay gathering at the San Jose Convention center on February 22, 2014. The gathering was to be a dry run for night shoots for FanimeCon 2014 later in the year, while there was still enough nighttime before Daylight Savings kicks in. For me, it was an exercise in getting a handle on night shoots using flash, and the 50+% cull rate indicates that I still much to learn and refine when it comes to that. However, the shots that did turn out were decent enough, so that's encouraging at least.]]>

Here are my photos taken at the NorCal Summer 2013 Cosplay Gathering, held on June 15, 2013 at Coyote Point Park in San Mateo, CA. This one beat out the previous Spring gathering with an official count of over 300 people attending. However, I wound up taking fewer shots this time around, spending a bit more time just relaxing, hanging out, and chatting. Perhaps it has something to do with the large photo workload that FanimeCon 2013 brought me but a few weeks previous.]]>
