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 ). 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
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 . 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 ), drop me a line and we'll see if we can arrange something!
