PAX Prime 2012 Highlights (Right place, wrong lens)

 

PAX Prime 2012 was AMAZING and I’m finally getting to posting these photos from it. For the most part I’m happy with them but quickly discovered that even a 50mm lens is not quite wide enough to get those full body shots very easily in a convention setting. You live you learn I guess, but here are some highlights I finally got around to editing and posting. I’m using Lightroom for the first time with these which has raised a new and undesirable learning curve so for the most part just some light curve and balance correction on these, nothing too fancy. I’m not sure if I’ll get to posting the other 356 images from PAX (especially with Comikaze this weekend) but for the mean time enjoy…

“I Can’t Hear You”

Just fooling around with a new flash setup, trying to get some practice in before PAX, however the results are pretty far from perfect (insert paragraph of self criticism). Fingers crossed that I can come back with some epic pictures. I also wanted to try and do touchups via pixlr which unfortunately does not allow you to edit RAW images, so I went with a large jpeg. These are the probably over compressed results, but anywho.

Sydney’s Birthday Night

Sydney (Futurespeak) had her birthday this last week and I had just purchased a new lens for my camera, so one thing led to another and here are then less than perfectly edited results…
