Wow... it's been nearly a year since I wrote my last journal. Not sure if anyone reads them, but I figure I'd give a little update. I sort of "quit" cosplay photography for a while, and now I'm shooting in a very limited capacity. Basically if I have time, I'll shoot with whoever is on hand or is available, and at conventions I no longer schedule shoots anymore. I really hated dealing with all of the cancels, missing some other awesome cosplayers due to waiting around, and drama surrounding who/what I shot and when I finished edits for them and of course the fame drama of cosplayers and photographers. It seems these days all anyone wants
I know it's been a while since I posted photos (just recently did a set last night), but just wanted to let everyone know I'm still here and still taking photos of cosplay. I just had to take a vacation from everything for a while, and get my priorities in order. I'm trying to branch out a bit more and do more fashion shots as well as some landscape/street photos as well. This year I took a trip to Japan with some friends of mine: ~JoLuffiroSauce (https://www.deviantart.com/joluffirosauce) , :icondeadpool790:, and :icongarpstavosauce: and had an absolute blast there. It's one of the places I had always wanted to visit and I'm glad to have had the opportunity. So
Hello everyone! I thought I'd do a journal on my current gear setup. I've gotten quite a few requests about the gear I use for my shoots, and I figured I would do a quick journal on it.
First off, I've been asked many many times about "my D4." I know my profile picture shows me with a Nikon D4, but that picture was taken at CES 2012, when I was just playing around with the D4. I've never actually owned a D4 or shot with one really. Which leads me into point #1, my camera system! I don't own a DSLR camera, I own and shoot with a mirrorless camera!
