Dragon*Con 2011 Photo Post

I finally got around to getting all of my Dragon*Con 2011 pictures posted. I ended up not shooting as many pictures as last year due to my ringflash project, but I am ok with that fact.

Dragon*Con 2010 Thursday

Well Dragon*Con is over and I am finally able to start getting some pictures posted. I had a great time at the con this year, and don’t really have any complaints that the con can control aka drunken football fans starting fights and stealing badges etc. We had a good year on our coverage with Geeks of Doom and look forward to covering it again next year.

Most of Thursday night was spent in the Marriott shooting back to back with Chase of Chasing Photography where we had big lights setup just to play around with some lighting setups.

Here are a couple of sample shots.

Return of the Ren Faire season

This Saturday it is time once again to get back into the ren faire spirit. I am heading down to Atlanta on Friday evening, accompanied by Ivan and Summer, and will be attending the Georgia Renaissance Festival or GARF for short on both Saturday and part of Sunday. I am still torn as to whether or not I am going to go in costume, or just be comfy and take pictures. I don’t really care to carry my camera with me if I am in costume, so it is still up in the air as to what to do. The plan is to return for the final weekend of GARF as well, so I will probably do that one is a costume of some sort.

The other big thing that I get to do this weekend is to see my new nephew Andrew for the first time. I am very excited about this, as I need to establish my status as the cool uncle. I know that Joshua is happy to have a little brother, so that should be a cool experience. I definitely plan to get some good pictures of the nephews to give to my parents and my sister.

I had a blast when I went to GA for the faire last year. It is a different environment than the TN Renaissance faire in that GA has each vendor in their own freestanding buildings, something TN can’t do due to stupid zoning restrictions etc. GA was a much better faire for vendors, but the entertainment value of TN trumps GA in my opinion many times over. TN faire starts of in a week, and I plan to go at least one day each weekend if not both. With the new house, I am MUCH closer to the faire site, and I can always take the bike up there and get front row parking in the motorcycle lots if I don’t feel like getting there at opening gate for a good parking spot.

I love just wandering around at the faire. I have it down to a science where I can do a whole day for about 10 bucks total if I try, and that is being there from 9:30 until pub sing at the end of the day. There are very few things that you can spend 10 bucks on for a full day of entertainment. I don’t include entry into this figure, as I but a season pass. As long as I go 5 times total, that makes the pass worth it.

If you are going to be at GARF or are going to TN, let me know when you will be there so I can be sure to keep an eye out for you.
