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

I finally finished going through the Saturday photos. I had a lot and also had a few things get in the way of processing.

Otakon 2011 Thursday Photos

I finished going through the first day of photos from the Otakon 2011 convention in Baltimore, MD today. Some highlight images of the day: I primarily used the DA 40mm f2.8 lens for that day, switching between using and not using the flash.

Preparation for the Otakon Convention (Lens Kit)

I’m thinking about what to bring to the “Otakon” Anime convention. As this is going to be a big trip for us, I wanted to bring my A-game. The K-5 body is still MIA, but I wanted to have two camera bodies available. I purchased a used *ist D camera body. That blurred coin in the image is a nickel, not a quarter! I just had the camera delivered a … Continue reading
