The world that I see through my lens!

Major photo sharing issue

So due to Flickr’s recent “updates” they removed the ability for photo sets to be directly shared to wordpress blogs, along with the ability to manually embed said photo sets as well. Due to this downgrade, I may actually stop, or slow down, how much I share to this blog.. It is always so frustrating when sites remove features “for the greater good” even though said features were very very helpful :/

 

For now though, here is the link to my latest photo set, enjoy!

It has been a long time since my last post :/

Throughout 2013 I started to realize how nice it would be to have a telephoto lens for certain shoots and events and now it looks like I will be set for whatever is to come in 2014 🙂 Of course with this being a Sigma lens, I had to go out and try it. Thankfully the reviews I read about it turned out to be right so far and the lens itself handles highlights fairly well on cloudy days too! But it does seem like there is a small focusing issue..

Normally I rarely get chances to use lenses in this focal range a lot so the pictures with it won’t be that great for a few months while I get used to it.

[Photoshoots] Trying something..different?

Trying something..different?, a set on Flickr.

Via Flickr:
Just a collection of short photoshoots where I want to experiment with different editing styles; assuming I manage to achieve said editing style that is.

Shoot #1 (Pictures 1-3): Trying out a low contrast editing style WITHOUT using my off-camera light as well. Sadly my 7D can’t render colours as nicely as I wanted after the sun went down past a certain hour :/

Shoot #2 (Pictures 4-9): Attempt #2 at the same editing style, just with my flash this time. The results were really nice this time and the colours were much more even. Now whether or not I actually managed to get the style right is up in the air; it is hard for me to low contrast out of the blacks :c

Shoots #3 and #4 will focus on black & white processing!

Sorry for taking so long with these. It seems that I was completely exhausted after AR ended and getting sick didn’t help matters @_@ Cosplayers in my photos; if you want copy of your picture(s) send me a message with your email and a link to 1-2 of your photos and I will have them sent to you asap!

Year two of Anime Revolution and the first event that I had a media pass for! Here’s a break down of my time there 🙂

Day One: The first day is generally supposed to be the most relaxing but sadly that wasn’t the case for me. I had to get through the day without any sleep while learning the in’s & out’s of a new softbox at the same time because of that, the quality of the photos isn’t as great as I normally achieve :s The main focus of this day was the Angelic Pretty USA Fashion Show. It was unfortunate that the stage lighting was so horrible for it =_=

Day Two: After recharging with some sleep things did get a lot easier for me. I spent all of Day Two just going to/having photoshoots and I (unfortunately) didn’t mange to cover any panels or other events plus I missed the annual Zombie Walk :/ The main focus of this day was the League of Legends photoshoot! Also special thanks to Winston Wong Photography for helping me with a shoot near the end of the day. It just showed how much more I can do if I bring along an assistant next time!

Day Three: Just wrapping up the weekend and getting some last minute pictures; pretty quiet over all. I am disappointed that I didn’t capture as large a variety of cosplays as I had hoped for :/

Next year I am hoping that they release the schedule a lot earlier, I had a horrible time managing to fit any panel or event in without cutting down on my cosplay focus -_-

These would have been finished much earlier had things not come up and distracted me 😡

Anyway, I only had 4 hours to spend at MiniComi and both Laika Cosplay & Nyurt Cosplay were attending so we did the obvious thing when we met up. I plan on getting better/more pictures when we meet again around AR in august 🙂
