I had an amazing time at Fanime 2015. To be honest I wasn’t even sure I was going until the last minute, but I somehow lined up a full schedule of shoots.
I saw Rikkugrape(https://www.facebook.com/RikkuGrape) had a Fire Emblem cosplay and I knew it was defintely one of the collaborations I really wanted to work on. I’m really happy with how it came out.
My second most memorable image is one of DJ Sona from League of Legends. I shot her against the lights by the Hilton and it made the image really pop to life. It was a quick shoot but a ton fun photoshop work!
I had the fun of working with WindoftheStars(https://www.facebook.com/WindofthestarsCosplay) again. It’s been quite a while since I’ve seen her rocket to stardom and it was fun to catch up.
I coincidentally found Yashafluff(https://www.facebook.com/YashaCosplay) – I took a few shots of her RWBY cosplay at Katsucon and was amazed at her level of workmanship. I got a few quick shots of her Sinon because who doesn’t love a chick with a big gun?
I’ve worked with Enayla Cosplay(https://www.facebook.com/EnaylaCosplay) before as we are both Guild War 2 fans. It was my only MMORPG but the people in the game were so darn nice I kept playing for a while. She is a master of armor so it’s always fun to shoot her stuff.
I collaborated with some awesome socal cosplayers (by coincidence they did the same cosplay!)
JS Cosplay(https://www.facebook.com/JSCosplay) and Moon Farron Cosplay(https://www.facebook.com/princessmooncosplay). Shooting action cosplays is always fun and Katarina always makes shoots lively. Also had tons of fun working with Missyeru(https://www.facebook.com/MissyeruCosplay) – I can tell you she is one of the most professional and timely people to respond back to you at a convention and I am throughly impressed at her level of communication.
I felt there’s a lot of things that can be improved going forward regarding consistency and concept with my shoots. Also going back to full manual shooting is another goal vs shooting in Av. I also brought back flash photography for this Fanime as you can see. I feel I grew but there’s plenty more space for that. See you guys at Anime Expo!
