Vacation Trip: Japan

じゃあまたシカゴ (See Ya Chicago)

Off to Japan

Taking a much needed vacation in Japan for a while. Visiting Tokyo, Kanazawa, Osaka, & Kyoto.

Expect lots of great photos of my adventures.                          See you in two weeks.

I’ll try my best to post updates of my trip.

こんにちは日本 (Hello Japan)

Unexpected Inactivity on the JAWS Blog

Sorry for the long silence on the blog. Not only was I busy these past couple months with cons and work, but the Squarespace Blog app has been giving me trouble. It was never reliable and could never upload photos to the posts. As I kept having trouble make a blog post, I just got frustrated i couldn’t make posts on my tablet. With my laptop being my only way to post blogs, I just decided to keep my focus on my photo projects more than blogging on my computer.

Thankfully, Square recently updated their apps and it’s now more easy and user friendly to post on your site. With a lot of big things happening in my photo business, it’s great that I can get back into blogging

Sorry again for the long inactivity. Thank You for your patience. I’m glad to finally post to this blog with ease.

Photo Update: Newt Scamander Cosplay Studio Shoot

Sorry for the long wait. I’ve been busy with work, photo shoots, and a lot more exciting things planned for the future. 

With the recent release of Fantastic Beast: Crimes of Grindelwald, Nick reached out to me to do a cosplay studio shoot of his updated Newt Scamander cosplay. This is actually my second shoot with Nick in his Newt cosplay, which was at C2E2 this past year. It’s interesting how much his cosplay has improved since C2E2; with a new coat, new beasts, and even makeup to give more character.  As great as the shoot was, a studio shoot can only give you so much diversity in photos. In the future, it would be nice to shoot a Newt cosplay around the historic parts of downtown Chicago.

Also to add, this was also my first photo shoot using my new Pixel Tubes from Astera. These items are 3 foot LED tubes that This light was demoed at my workplace, and thought of getting a few for my studio. They were not as powerful as I hoped to change the color on the backdrop. However, they were nice to have for additional colors and more lighting on the subject.

Introductions

Hello Everyone. Welcome to my blog.

On this blog, you’ll not only get detailed updates and reports on my shoots but also advice for novice photographers & thoughts on certain discussions. If there’s any topic you wish for me to discuss, please leave a comment below  

Now it’s been a while since I managed a blog. Since I’m no longer a college student with free time, I’m not sure how often I’ll post to my blog. It could be daily, weekly, or by photo gig. No matter what, I’ll do my best to entertain and inform my readers. 

Thanks for reading and hope you enjoy future posts.
