Otakon 2011 Photos Completed

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. Overall the flash is a big help outside to create a level exposure between the subject and background, yet still having high contrast throughout the image. The … Continue reading
