The March Madness is hereee! Lots of ups and downs. Did an amazing shoot with Dot.Cosplay in the rain. It was fantastic, but cold haha. I went to a breakdancing competition and it was fun to get back in that environment; so much unique styles coming together. Teamed up with local productions here to do what can be a weekly podcast. Got my fingers crossed for that one =D
Sad news is after running 2 miles 2-4 times a week this year, I got shin splints. I’ve ignored them while running, but now it’s gotten pretty painful. Wearing compression socks for the most part, but my running has been put to a halt. I think my fastest 2-miles was 14:36. I want to break that record again, but for now I shall rest. Nothing is going to stop me though, if I cannot run I’ll bike, swim, or crawl if I have to!
No matter what, stay awesome you all!
This was a fantastic week! I had a crazy idea for the first day, I drafted a quick sketch and set up process to get it to how I wanted it to look. It was creative for me, but a bit odd; venturing out of my comfort zone. I’m planning to do more of that. =]
I was a production assistant on set for a short film at Idyllwild, that was pretty awesome helping things go smoothly. It was a blast to meet the director and seeing how people work on a set in the forest. The next big con for me will be Fanime, so I’m doing a “Road to Fanime”. With this I will be running during workouts totaling up to 150 miles by Fanime. Also, after talking to the awesome cosplayers from ALA that I got to work with, I sent out the RWBY print to Mr. Monty Oum. I look forward to this year and the things I will bring to the table!
Day 50|365 (Week 8 Day 1/7)
Some kind of…human?
Been awhile since I did some intense photoshopping. Dat Automail though. Costume patient pants sewn by Cara way back when MGS4 first came out.
Week…Something…6?(update it’s week 7)
I’m going to be honest, I’m not a big fan of Black and White photography (Crazy isn’t it?). Therefore, I wanted to explore it, just like photoshop editing, hdr, and other stuff I have pushed myself to learn. In this case, I find myself funny in the “we’re laughing at you kind of way”. It is not black and white photography, at least to me it no longer is. It is capturing light. That is what photography is! (it’s okay to laugh at me now haha). With this, there has been improvement in understanding light; or at least I think so.
Something cool I learned: Shooting in RAW on a DSLR with the Monochromatic style will still come out as color in Lightroom.
Tested out random lighting set ups on the grass in front of the convention and this was the outcome =]

No theme for this week, but next week I’ll be doing black and white photographs. I’m not a big fan, I’m a real life person! Ahaha, sorry I’m feeling a bit fatigued. It was an amazing week, I hit 10k on deviantart, received my degree in the mail, realized stairs can make for an awesome set. I dabbled in some window lighting and I might just start up a podcast! who knows =]
My friend from Fleeting Moment Media has turned me into a meme haha

I’m starting to like long-exposure shots more. I found that my shower isn’t half bad as a backdrop. Also, taking pictures at a cemetery is pretty dang creepy.
"I met a traveller from an antique land Who said: "Two vast and trunkless legs of stone Stand in the desert . . . Near them, on the sand, Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown, And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command, Tell that its sculptor well those passions read Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things, The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed: And on the pedestal these words appear: 'My name is Ozymandias, king of kings: Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!' Nothing beside remains. Round the decay Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare The lone and level sands stretch far away."
Week #4 Started on a Wednesday during the beginning of my last year here working part time at the college. This week has been pretty work heavy, so haven’t had time to do much photoshop. Testing out HDR stuff, not a big fan of it, but something good to learn. Also took pictures in a library, felt weird like I was sneaking in because it’s always empty. For the next upcoming week, I plan to make a theme out of it. As always, enjoy! Now I’m going back to work.
