Okay - a call out to cosplayers!
I will be at #Otakon next Saturday and wanna take some dedicated pics. Trying to get myself to a better level with my pics and while I greatly enjoy my “gonzo” approach to photography, planning out mini photo-shoots seems the next logical step.
Please contact me thru email or messaging if you’re attending and want to help me out.
I spent five days at Comicon this year, and discovered a new level of exhaustion and fatigue every day, surpassing the level I’d discovered the day before. By the time I was finally on the train back home, I had reached a point of burn out that I never though I’d experience: I pretty much don’t want to go to Comicon any more, because it’s stopped being fun for me.
Possibly a sign of the (end of) times? I’m not famous and probably never will be (unless my photography takes off or Hollywood casts me as the snarky, middle-aged man for the “Snarky, Middle-Aged Man” movie) but I can empathize with over-crowded convention floors and lack of sleep taking their toll. This blog post is a good read as you get to see things from the guests’ point-of-view.
In my little world, cons are supposed to be fun and energizing as you get to meet, greet, and possibly woo people who are just as geeky & weird as you are and have fun with them.
