Northern Anime Festival - the photo sessions

Back to Events


Keeping with my Ad-Astra photos I went for many shots of a few people, in this case mostly the people who were hanging out outside and posing for photos.

General notes:

  • I had a telephoto lens that I tried to double as a portrait lens. Though it produced some good shots here and there, it also convinced me to get the right tool for the right job, meaning that I own a prime lens now.
  • This lens was really a bipolar experience - either it produced crap or really nice shots, with little in between. I guess that makes culling down photos into a manageable set much easier...
  • Outdoor photoshoots really are wonderful - so much more space to work with, so many less people to deal with. And NAF, being a small con, makes for an idea photo spot.
  • I actually *gasp* read a little about Photoshop and have actually learned to use some of the better tools. And it reallly helps out.

Final thoughts: And as this gallery is closed, I come to thank my stars that I only did one shoot with the mega-telephoto lens of grainyness. Hooray for never using that as a portrait lens again, though it has other uses. Still, lesson learned I guess, and I managed to wring a few good shots out of it. Anyway, again, many thanks to all who took part in this experiment in galleries and I'll do a better job next time [grin]
