Beach D.VA

The wonderful thing about Overwatch is the huge variety of outfits available for the cosplay community.   Masapuff picked up a swimsuit and we hit up the beach for some photos and snacks.  The tide has been messing with the spots I frequent in town so we switched it up a few times to see what worked best.  The only downside to moving so much is having to clean off the sand before getting into the car.  As much as I never expected to use it, the tilt screen for these newer cameras can be pretty useful.   I couldn’t get the perspective I desired until I held the camera way above my head and it would have been much more difficult to focus without such a useful feature.

 

Last Minute Trip to Cali Part 2

I had a great opportunity to shoot in a studio for the first time thanks to my friend Ed.   He held my hand as I worked with studio strobes and gave lots of great tips that I have generally forgotten.  The advice may need to be repeated a few dozen times. This experience has motivated me to set something up in my living room at home, the main problem is convincing people to come to this side of the island for photos.  Instead of going out on crazy adventures my trip was rather low key, spending a lot of time trying to meet up with my friends.  It may be considered boring to handle my time up there like I did, but I was so happy to meet up with everyone.
