2 years, give or take. I asked a buddy to edit a photo of me and a friend in cosplay, and he did such a great job it inspired me to try making my own.
Yes. I always loved taking pictures, then in high school, I took a class In photography and won an award for my pictures at the school’s annual art show. In college, I went on to study graphic design and photography but didn’t really do anything with it until a couple of years ago. A few months before my daughter was born I had all this nervous energy. I focused it into going to whatever remaining cons I could before the due date, and editing cosplay photos I took on my phone. All my work is done on my phone.
Berserk, One Punch Man, and Castlevania.
My favorite con to shoot at is BlerdCon. The sense of community, amazing and creative cosplays and mind-blowing content make this make favorite con. I’ve gone to it every year since it started.
Yes, but too many to name!
My favorite cosplays to do are Two-Face and Spider-Man Noir. I haven’t cosplayed in a long time because I’ve focused more on being behind the camera than in front, but I plan to do it again.
Batman (1989) and Black Panther. I saw Batman when I was 7 and after probably 100+ viewings I never get tired of it. And no matter how many Batman movies come out, or how good they’ll be, this one will always be #1 for me.
Black Panther is just perfection. I can’t express how important it was for me to see that level of black representation in a critically acclaimed blockbuster. I believe it will go down in history as one of the most influential comic book movies ever. Sequels and spin-offs now, please!
I’m always trying to improve by collaborating with new cosplayers, photographers, and artists. Almost every day I devote at least a little time to working on photography projects.
The best practice for me is studying the work of those who have much more experience and resources than I do. I can then force myself to think of new ways to make the most of what recourses I have.
I hope to one day be able to afford a computer and software needed to elevate my work beyond what I’m doing on my phone. Until then I’ll keep trying to squeeze what I can from the limited photography apps I currently have access to on my iPhone.
I love both but Trek is life. I even have a huge Klingon symbol tattooed on my back. I love the classics but I’m super hyped on the new Treks. Not the JJ Abrams movies, but the new CBS All Access shows. If they were on a more popular streaming service way more pore people would be watching them. I can’t wait for the next season of Discovery and Picard!!
