World Wide Photo Walk 2011

So I noticed a while back on Facebook that a camera store called Lundgrens was setting up a photo walk to coincide with something called the World Wide Photo Walk, so I signed up. It was fun to take photos around a great park in the area. If you happen to be one of the people I asked for a photo, send me an email and I’ll respond back with … Continue reading

What to expect from Pentax in a few months?

Fall is usually a time for new camera announcements. Just recently Pentax France showed a promo PDF that hinted at a new camera body besides the Q and 645D. They have since modified the PDF and removed the hint, but it’s interesting at least. If you frequent PentaxForums.com, you will know a debate on Pentax Full-frame comes up every so often. As I’m a person who feels I could benefit … Continue reading

Chicago Comic Con 2011 Video

I compiled a video from the clips that I took Sunday at Wizard World’s Chicago Comic Con. Uploaded it to Youtube for your viewing pleasure! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qoSwvV0apUg As you can see from this and past videos, I like upbeat fast paced dance style music. I also have been trying to use Creative Commons licensed music to avoid any unwanted headaches. So I think I improved a bit from my last video … Continue reading

Otakon 2011 Photos Completed

I finished up processing of Sunday photos last night. The only other thing I might do is to see if I can piece together a video from all of the clips I took at Otakon, but that’s to be determined if I have enough decent content to use. Probably my biggest convention yet photo count wise. I think that’s due to having Thursday and a full Friday to work with. … Continue reading

Otakon 2011 Videographer Acksonl

So I was wondering around on Sunday and noticed a large break dance competition at Otakon on Sunday. It looks like it was orchestrated for a video of a new, yet already well known, Canadian videographer nicknamed “Acksonl” (aka. Ackson’s Creatives) on Youtube. His work is popular enough that I noticed quite a few mimics with similar setups circling around cosplayers at the convention. So anyways, I hung around for … Continue reading
