I don’t want to stop. And maybe I want to run away from it all. But…the joy of living far outweighs the fear of death. Isn’t it the same for you? Traveling with your friends gives your life meaning.
The preview video to a much more ambitious video project that will be released Sunday. This is the amazing Final Fantasy IX group I had the pleasure of photographing at Anime Boston 2012. They patiently and good-humoredly recreated all of the poses I asked of them and came up with many stellar ones of their own. Thank you so much to the group and everyone who helped out with lighting and equipment handling. I owe you guys hugely.
So since AB is coming up, I felt it appropriate to reblog this again. Because of FEELS.
“Everyone…thank you. My memories will be part of the sky…”
I FINALLY finished all my Anime Matsuri photos. Here are some of my fave photos that I’ve taken since then. It feels like I’ve been working on AM photos FOREVER, and I honestly was feeling in a bit of a photo rut and very very uninspired after AM. I don’t think these photos are half bad though. It makes me feel better about myself T_T
Photos from NYC Central Park, Anime Detour in the Twin Cities, Anime Central in Chicago, and Boston’s Faneuil Hall.
Bioshock Infinite is a true masterpiece. I’ve had my eyes on doing a shoot set in this world since the E3 2011 demo went online. It wasn’t until a few short weeks ago I came across Aicosu and Sheila’s spot on portrayel of Elizabeth that I realized a shoot in this world was possible. Faneuil Hall was her idea. Can’t believe I didn’t think about going to Boston from the beginning. Boston architectural IS Columbia. It’s the perfect backdrop for bringing the game world to life. It also helped that it was Sheila’s first time in the areas we went to so in retrospect she really was Elizabeth that day taking in her new surroundings with wonderment and excitement.
Huge thanks to Sheila of Aicosu for coming to Boston for a shoot and being one of the best people I’ve had the chance to shoot with yet. You were awesome. And huge thank you to Ger Tysk of Chou-wa Photography and Cosplay for joining us and getting some shots of her own which I can’t wait to see.
More images will be uploaded in the coming days. And you better believe I want to explore Columbia more. I have a huge amount of ideas I want to make happen. This is just the tip of the iceberg.
Ahh! some of Nate’s shots from our Bioshock shoot, 2 weeks ago. You can see me in the window in one of the photos XD
I’m still working on mine…they won’t be up for a while cause I am totally backlogged from Anime Matsuri -_-
