Been a while.......

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 30, 2015, 8:33 PM




....since I made a journal entry.

House caught fire while at Anime Weekend Atlanta 2014.  I did have a raid mirror setup, but both drives where subjected to serious heat.  I haven't taken them in to a data recovery service yet, but I did get an estimate of $5,000.  I don't have that kind of money.  So, for the time being, all photos before AWA 2014 can be considered lost.  I do have some saved in stash, and will be uploading those.

I have a new computer now.  I have also gotten a lot better at processing photos.

Eddie of Pappa-Not-Zi has asked me to be part of his team at Omni Expo.  Eddie has been chosen to be the head photographer.  omniexpo.com/index.cfm?ID=1

Lastly, I would like to recommend NBC "Hannibal."  It is much better than "The Walking Dead" IMO and rivals "Game Of Thrones" for quality.  I think I "GOT" is still my favorite show, but "Hannibal" is a close second.  www.nbc.com/hannibal

I am the photographer. It is OK to criticize the photography. It is NOT OK to criticize the models.


My X-Box gamer tag is "Camera Mike."

I'm a lot like me, only more so.

I'm really not as serious as I look.

Shots before Anime Supercon 2007 (I think it was in November) were taken with a Nikon Coolpix 995. From November 2007 to December 2011 all shots were taken with a Canon EOS 40D. In December, my EOS 40 exploded, wiping out a small African village. I was forced to use a Nikon Coolpix S9100. It is a good consumer grade camera. Then I bought a Canon Rebel T3 in January 2012. It's a better consumer camera. Now I have a Canon EOS 60D.


I only refuse to take a stranger's picture under two circumstances:

1- I'm almost out, or out of memory.

2- You make a bad first impression. <- This has only happened 4 times. Two of the times involved alcohol.

I don't believe the term "comic book" is a valid term for what we generally refer to as "comic books." The illustrated stories are, with few exceptions, not primarily stories of comedy. Therefore, I use the term "manga" when refering to illustrated fiction, since the Japanese term means... >.< "whimsical pictures."

Some days I can't win.


My current rules for Deviant Art:

Since Deviant Art changed their tagging format, and I don't seem to be motivated to update regularly, there are no rules for me.

Hope all is well with you, and you got good shots from Dragon Con. If I may ask, is there any thoughts on the opening up of dragon con group? I rather told a lot of people to look for their photos on the group. :)
