My Bio
I am a hobbyist photographer who has very little time on his hands. I mainly attend Anime Conventions/Festivals/Expos/ComicCons which is where most of my photography time takes place. I also do get the odd chance to wonder about the local country side for some landscape shots. I primarily use a Canon 7D camera, but I also have my good ole trusty 450D hanging about just in case.

Favourite Gaming Platform
XBOX360
Tools of the Trade
My Laptop
Other Interests
Rhythm Action Games, Computing, Photography, Stress(!)

Seriously neglected account!

Seriously neglected account!

Well, I thought I would post, given it has been almost 2 years since I put any journal up, and almost 5 months since I last put any photos up. It is a shame really, time has just not been on my side for the last few events, also in life as well. I do need to make some time to do something I have put so much into. Unfortunately, as luck would have it, I have used up all my holiday days on events now. I can scrape a single day back if I am lucky enough, which means I can't just waltz in and "attend" any single event now. So there in lies the dilemma, what to do next. I can't usually get away at events due to the time required to keep things g

It's kinda annoying as the images are of Cosplayers who have very colourful outfits on! Bah! So I apologise if they do not look any good, if you want to see them in their original colour, head over to my Flickr page, as they went up fine over there! http://www.flickr.com/photos/mystcb/ Peace Out!

Critique and all that jazz

Critique and all that jazz

Good morning all! I thought I should update the journal on the front page, as I am not really on holiday any more! Plus with the new account status, I really should try and use this a lot more. Anyway, this one is going to come as a major favour and request from everyone on my watch list, friends, photographers and cosplayers alike, to basically look through my photos and if possible please send me some constructive criticism and critique for all the photos I have taken. I do wish to get better, and the one thing that I don't seem to have much of is any comments on the way it was taken, and such. Don't stop the other comments coming throug
