On June 4, 2016 I attended the 2016 Cos-play con in Taylor, MI. It was fun with some good turnout. As I do with every event I try to learn something from each Shoot, if I have not learned anything from a event or photo shoot then I did not try anything new. On this day I experimented with flash in dark area’s (at the after party) and Most of the day shot in Manual mode (normally shoot in Aperture Priority mode).
Take a look and my next blog will be about a photoshoot I did at Motor City Comic Con. Till then, have a nice day.
This year I went to Motor City Comic Con again, third year in a row. This year I got Lots of great photos, I will be posting photos from the Cos-play Competition in the next few weeks.
Got a nice photo-shoot with the lovely Erica (photo to the left) Cos-playing as Poison Ivy. As well as I got to meet Brent Spiner (Data) No really spectacular story for this con, I did not get suspended or anything. So I will leave you with the gallery. 🙂
Two weeks ago I went to a Linux and Opensource convention (Penguicon), in the hopes to spark some idea’s for my Basic Computer Help channel. Good news is that it worked. I also managed to get some shots of some Cos-Players and with my new Nikon D7200. Review coming soon. I am going to quickly touch on a lot of different topics in this post. I may a detailed post on some subjects later, going to do a vlog on my experence on the Gender Neutral Bathrooms.
First thing I want to state is that this was a Convention that was all about consent and I did enjoy that a lot, and as far as I can tell they did enforced it.
I sat in on a good number of panels and lectures (at least 10) on Cos*playing and Linux. I even got invited to sit on one panel and had fun with that. I am going to reach out to speak on more next year.
The cos*players there where amazing and I was a little surprised that a Linux/Open Source con would even have cos*player.
I shared some Images in Instagram already but the 3 I am most proud of is the header for this post. Toaden from Toaden.com suggested I take that shot and I am glad he did. Great shot from that. Another 1 is the one on the right of this paragraph. She was in body paint mostly and I shared it on Instagram and someone flagged it and it got removed, 🙁 sad as for Motor City Comic Con this year I will not be able to post any teasers to Instagram because I have a 2 week suspension from posting (gets lifted Sunday) and that picture was my only strike on Instagram. At the end of the photo gallery is a great photo of Harly Quinn and I believe someone dressed in Steam Punk, there was a Steam Punk party about to go on that sadly I could not make it to.
As always you can click on any photo to see a larger version of it.
First I must apologize for the late post and lack of Images, I caught a nasty bug before this event that had me under the weather. I did manage to get some good shots though, This was a small event (about 20 tables or so). I managed to get a few shots of Cos-players. At the end of the Gallery is a video made by my good friend ToadenK. My illness also made me need to skip the Nain Rouge
