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!
