Kawaii Kon Saturday 2017

The rest of the weekend involved me attempting to find friends to photograph.  A lot of them were running around in preparation for the big contest.  The prep for prejudging and the actual show caused some difficulties finding them till after everything finished.   I also feel like my time management could have been done better. While I did manage to shoot a handful of my friends, there were many people I missed.  Internal crying occurs when I finally saw all the great cosplays everyone else had the chance to photograph.

This whole problem developed from the way I started shooting.   There are almost no general hallway shots anymore, I have started pulling off to the side in order to avoid the crowds or find some decent lighting.  It means the people meeting with me get a lot more attention at the cost of not running into others. I really enjoy meeting everyone during these cons so there needs to be an adjustment to how I manage my time.

 

Fanime 2016

Our trip to the Bay area ended with Fanime and it blew through like a hurricane.  We managed to get a hotel at the Marriott, which enabled us to stay around much later than we normally do.  Although, we still did not crack out till the late hours like all the other people did. I made an attempt to hang out at the game room one early morning and I looked like trash the next day. Oh how I wish for caffeine. more “Fanime 2016”
