The summer's end is approaching. It's been a fun, exciting, yet relaxing summer for me, the most un-stressful I've experienced in a long time. I hope everyone's summer has been that way as well, whether the vacation part is still ongoing or has ended!
I also hope that you might take some sort of pleasure or amusement from any of my submissions, and especially hope that the cosplayers and those who enjoy those photos appreciate all of the effort and kindness cosplayers have, to make or find costumes, and allow me to photograph them and share the pictures here, with you. They've all worked hard and I think their efforts deserve to be acknowledged with respect. ^.^
In addition, I hope those who've been looking are enjoying some of my non-cosplay photos! I know, it's quite different than most of what is seen from me, so I'm wondering what do you all think of my photography? I have been learning new techniques and trying to apply them, so that I can make all of my shots more skillful and artistic. I want my photographs to tell some sort of story, or be one of those images that can have a meaning for people beyond just a "smile for the camera" sort of thing. As the time of summer conventions wanes, and time for studying and school increases, my time to do photo shoots of any sort diminishes. Thus, I apologize to those who follow mainly for cosplay photos, for the lessening of submissions that will probably result, and that those will mostly be non-cosplay.
That being said, I especially would like to thank the people that say anything on my personal artwork or photography. I don't mind if you love it, hate it, or are indifferent! It's really encouraging just to know someone looks at them besides me, haha!
Most importantly, a giant shout-out thank you is in order for my friend Karina, who has taught me how to tag people with icons so they can see their photographs! I am ever in her debt now. Which means...PREPARE YOURSELVES FOR GIANT WAVE OF LINK ICONS. I apologize right now for how many notifications that might bring you all. Please bear with me; now that I've learned how to do it, for future photos I can tag immediately, instead of collectively like this. Spasibo! ^.^
Anyway, I hope everyone has fun seeing all the beautiful kinds of art on this lovely website!
Don't forget to be awesome! ; )
