This being my first Metrocon, I thoroughly enjoyed it, but it didn\'t quite live up to the hype it\'s gotten over the years. It seemed that the focus for panels was quantity over quality, and the one or two panels I sat in, I only stayed no more than 10-15 minutes. Despite all of this, the overall atmosphere was great, making it one of the better conventions I\'ve attended so far.]]>

There were a lot of firsts for this shoot. First off-convention cosplay shoot, first time using an umbrella-- the rest is history. This was a REALLY fun shoot :D]]>

I focused more on character-specific cosplay shoots at this convention. This gallery will be small, and just includes shoots with only one or two pictures. It would be silly to create a photoshoot album with only one picture in it. Oh yeah.... this con was small. I spent more time attending panels than taking pictures lol...]]>

Every time I see a Vocaloid group, I can't help but be reminded of iDOLM@STER in some way. I see the same derpy characteristics in the virtual idols, lol. This shoot was meant to be lively, cute, and fun :)]]>

Now this was a fun shoot. Full of nonsense, craziness, and a little bit more. This cosplay is based on the Vocaloid PV \\\"Matryoshka\\\", a song about about going all out in song and dance, in an otherwise boring and \\\"orderly\\\" society.]]>

As I was walking the single hallway of AFO, I passed by this group of Madoka Magica cosplayers. I just had to get this group together for a shoot. Unfortunately we lost our Mami and Homura (really wanted those MadokaxHomura pics lol). Nevertheless, we had an awesome time. Everything was laid back, and great pictures were taken in the process.]]>

This album includes the top 20 or so photos I took out of my 300+ pics. Still learning the ropes, but I'm getting better. Next con, I hope this number goes up to 50. Thanks to all the photographers I got to talk to who provided tips and motivation to help me get the ball rolling.]]>

I have read many blogs and have seen many photos of different anime conventions. Yet, I've never been to one myself until NYAF 2010. It was a thrilling experience, and I was overwhelmed at the sheer number of cosplayers and anime fans in general (maybe because they were all in one place!). I simply pointed my camera and let the shutter release do its thing. P.S.: I really should shrink these pics down before I upload them... lol sorry]]>
