It has been a something of a year I can tell you that.
I recently uploaded some shots from a cosplay photoshoot I did with two lovely people for their Higurashi no ni Kuni cosplays. It was at one of my favourite locations- UWA so I was super excited anyway. Moreover, They were cosplaying Mion and Shion, who if you don't know the anime, are twins. This was a lot of fun to shoot with regards to positioning and angles, particularly given one was a head taller than the other person. I really like how the shots turned out and can't wait to to do some more shoots.
Speaking of, I have for the past year been taking action photos for a local martial arts school I teach at as a teaching aid for footwork and position, not to mention a great encouragement for the students. Full albums can be found over at my facebook page. I have been debating posting some here but there are alot so I will have to pcik the eyes out of the collection for the very best. For the same school, I will be doing some two shoots for the new technique manual. One will be fairly simple and bland with basic postures, attacks and blocks to demonstrate the technique. The other is a larger shoot with both teachers and students at Chinese gardens, complete with Samurai outfits (currently under construction).
In other news, I completed National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) this year and won! I wrote 50 000 words in 29 days and part of me still can't beleive that I managed to do it. I am taking a week off writing this week but will be back into it with a less demanding deadline next week. The first draft isn't finished yet.
More news soon.
