I did some housekeeping on my Flickr account and severely culled my contacts–from somewhere over 250 to slightly under 90. A little housekeeping every now and then is a good thing.
Once again, it’s about time for my annual mini-vacation at Norwescon. This is my second year as part of the ConCom (Convention Committee — those of us who are crazy enough to volunteer to assist with planning and running the con), and I’ve really been enjoying it.
A fun new piece of photo editing/post-processing software was just released yesterday evening. All in all, I’m really impressed with Flare, and had a lot of fun playing with it and exploring different filters and combinations of effects.
Here are a few shots from Friday night. Everything was shot without flash — I had my flash with me, but never got around to putting it on the camera. I haven’t been able to go completely flash-free at the club in _years_…no matter how I pushed my D70s, it just couldn’t quite handle the low light of a goth club. The D7000, though, doesn’t even pause. This is fun.
It seems that Jan. 20th is Penguin Awareness Day. Though I was not aware of this, I _am_ aware of penguins. You should be too. Just in case you’re not…here are some penguins. Be aware.
I took a little time to go through my Amazon wishlists to see what was sitting in there. After a bit of editing (removed some, added one or two items), here’s what I’ve ended up with, in rough order from most realistic (less expensive) to least realistic (most expensive).
I’m home! Home, and recovering from another fun Norwescon. In something of a break from previous Norwescon wrapup posts, this one is going to be picture free. However, this is by no means due to a shortage of photos…in fact, just the opposite!
Last Saturday, American Gothique magazine hosted a fashion show at The Vogue, with Amazing Race contestants Kynt and Vyxsin as featured models. I was able to join the crowd of photographers crouched at the foot of the catwalk, and here are a few shots from the show.
A couple of weeks ago I got an invitation from the Norwescon 33 publications director asking if I might be interested in the con photographer position. I, of course, said that I was very interested, and we agreed to meet at today’s Volunteer Appreciation Picnic.
