Wow, last journal update was... Nov.. 2010!  Didn't check this page for quite a while (year maybe?), so I figure I write something.

I basically took the last 8-9 months off from pretty much all cosplay activity due to work.  65 hour weeks plus my God given affinity for laziness doesn't lend itself to many photoshoots or cons!  Also, I just sold my last 35mm camera lens today (no, I'm not quitting photography :p).  Previously, at the peak of my obsession with cameras, I was shooting with pretty much 7 complete systems.  Canon, Nikon, Sony, Pentax, Olympus, M43, and Sony NEX.  I had 20+ bodies and about 50+ lenses.  They were fun to play with, but I feel I never actually mastered anything.  Jack fo all trades, and master of none....  So I made a decision to sell off everything and just keep to 1 system....maybe 2 :p

I recently bought a Leica S2 and couple of the lenses.  I hope to start shooting again so I can get to know my gear.  Hopefully, Ill be hitting all the cons like I used to.  PLus, I'd like to get some shoots in on weekends too!; just to practice and get back into the game.  It's now 2013....I started cosplay photo shoots around the summer of 2009.  Im not going to count 2012 since I took most of the year off :p.  That leaves me with about 2.5 years of experience.  I think I came a long way, but there is plenty more to go!

Anyways, I think I blabbed long enough.  Hope to see you all out there!  If you are in Socal and want to get together to shoot (be my test subject :p), drop me a line and we'll see if we can arrange something!

Abbott!! How are you doing? I'm sorry I haven't gotten to get back to you for a while. I've tried messaging you on (Kaen) but I don't know if you go around there anymore. Has it really been over a year?? I see you are doing remarkable work as always.

You totally should have come to Reno for their new small convention, or Anime Vegas!! But to save you from both those trips, I will get to make it back to SacAnime this September. If you will be attending, I would love to snag you again for some awesome artwork. I'll be bringing two other friends along to cosplay as a group as well. =D
