All the images from Animazement 2008 are now uploaded. My attempt to place them in individual folder failed, so it's just one large group of images. I hope everyone enjoys viewing them, feel free to let me know what you think.

We arrived back home late Sunday evening, very exhausted but still full of energy. I know our group had a great time and I expect most everyone else did.
There was that one incident at 6:30 Sunday Morning that some of you may remember. The thing that made my happy through that early morning hour was the fact that all the people across the hall from us, who will still celebrating at 4:30 that morning had to get up and join everyone else. :)
I'm still working my way though all the photographs taken at the event. I had hoped to have them posted by now, but it will be a few more days, (going to see Indiana Jones tomorrow night) so please bear with me.
Not to leave empty handed, here are a few examples of my upcoming galleries from the Convention.
Artists and Dealers;
Cosplayers in General;
As well as the actual cosplay, dances, panels, and just things going on all around.
I always wonder how cosplayers, wearing their fine costumes all the time, could keep from spilling food on their outfits for 3+ days. The answer, easy, cosplayers don't eat!!
Although I must say, I found the best method of nutrition survival consisted of Iced Coffee and those cream-sugar-wafer-cookies. The ones in packs of vanilla, chocolate and strawberry.
After many long weeks of hard work, which consisted mostly of singing, dancing, stage building, singing, dancing, memorizing lines, singing, dancing, blocking, stage building, singing, memorizing, painting, building, dancing, singing and blocking, T.C. Roberson High School performed a fantastic rendition of the musical Footloose.
Full credit goes the numerous amount of people (Aleisa and Ryan, staff, volunteers, moms and dads, etc) it takes to put a performance like this together, but above all it's the students that make it work. Great work and Congratulations to them all.
And because this is my blog, great job Kathleen (Mrs. Matheny) and Caitie.
I've included a few photos (231) made from 2 nights of the performance. they have been uploaded large enough to make a print from your printer, please print as many or all that you like. As they were shot at high ISO, 1600, and 3200, we'll just consider the grain to be artistic.
Welcome to the Scenic Photographer.
I find photography to be a fluid craft that changes and evolves with time and experience. I believe a photographer never reaches a pinnacle, a point at which they have mastered the craft and discovers there is nothing else to learn.
Photography, for me, has a way of stopping time. While practicing my craft I lose all sense of time and space, although acutely aware of the chosen time to begin, once I have camera in hand and concentrate on shadows, shapes, tones, and light, the constraints of time seem to stay suspended in motion...and that moment, both visually and emotionally, is what I strive to capture with my images.
