SacAnime Winter 2018 | Cosplay Gatherings

IMG_1534.jpg

SacAnime Winter 2018 is less than a week away! Cosplay gatherings are a staple each day, so I make sure to attend a few throughout the weekend. The complete schedule went up earlier this month, and I finally decided on which ones to attend. I usually don't stay the whole duration of these gatherings, especially with this super cold weather happening right now. I tend to get the big group shot and grab solo shots of cosplayers afterwards. Say "hi" or something if you see me around!

Jedi Moon Cosplay as Primarina

I took an unusually long break from cosplay work, even knowing this photo set was due for posting. Steph knows I find myself knee deep with projects, but the pictures will eventually be finished. This was a little unique since we're in November. The Primarina shoot was in September, so two months of waiting. It's a different season to top it off, so hopefully people don't question things like "gee, why are you a mermaid in this chilly weather?" 

Some of you might noticed two different styles in the photo set. I did the shoot with Canon and Fujifilm just to see how both performed for stills. The more consistent colors and contrast similar to previous work is with the Fujifilm. People that are used to my work might be able to separate the differences, especially if you look at the out-of-focus bits. It's fun working with so many blues in this outdoor setting (same location as the vintage Ariel shoot). I prefer the Fujifilm gear after looking at these side-by-side. The photo above is with the Canon. Photo below this paragraph is taken with Fujifilm.

These shoots with Steph are always a blast, especially when the finished work turns out like this. It's always nice when both sides of the camera are firing on all cylinders. Check out the complete photo set here. Enjoy! 


THE GEAR

Fujifilm X-T1 + 56mm
Canon 77D + 18-135mm STM


Bastion in Maui Series | Day 5

Yesterday I was at my mom's wedding rehearsal, which wasn't that long of a process, but I still had to be there. Afterwards I got Bastion out for a quick shot on this rock near the wedding spot. It's right next to the beach, but not technically on the beach. A quick minute walk down some steps, and you're on the beach. This was shot with the Fujifilm X100F - somewhat forced myself to use the camera because I originally grabbed the X-T1 + 16mm combo because it's so fun to use. Aesthetically, I feel Bastion fits so well in outdoor settings, and this has made sense across plenty of mediums (in-game rustic versions, animated short Bastion).
