Once again, this to to update everyone who's still reading my journals lol.
It's nice to be back here in the States! England's been awesome and definitely learned a lot there. It was quite the culture shock and eye opener for me; not to mention giving me the opportunity to learn some real English lol. I've missed everyone and it was great to hang out again with those during my gatherings and events! As for what happened after I came back, I guess I can break them down by cons..
There's only one way to put it I guess; I've been busy catching up many photos work and some freelance design work I got since I was not able to do much while I was in Europe (the job there apparently demanded a lot more of my time than I expected) So I was keeping myself on the DL for the most part (so I do apologize if I was not able to hang much for lots ppl lol, because I wanted to finish all my work before DragonCon)
What can I say? This has got to be the best DragonCon I've been to; not because it's this year's DragonCon but how I approached it: with minimum work time and maximum chillaxing time with my friends. I only did 1 and 1/2 shoots (yes, 1/2) but in return I got to spend so much time with my friends from design studio, cosplay circle, and other familiar faces I didn't expect to run into.
Well one of the reasons I didn't want to do a lot of shoots was because I still got a lot of work to catch up, I need to stabilize my design career, and since I don't get to spend much time with my studio buddies after graduation, a major hang time was needed.
Another high point of DragonCon was when I was invited to a private party where I didn't expect to see many familiar faces, people I heard of, and those I talked to before but never met in person. It was very nice of Ljinto (Leonard) to host the part at his place. It was such a great way to see old faces and meet great new ones, especially when DragonCon can get so chaotic and crazy at times with so many people everywhere. Unfortunately the party got a bit out of control and people had to leave early, but never the less people had a blast and I can't wait to see those people again!
Well it isn't here yet but I have lots of preparation to take care of; finish up lots of work and settle down at my new place. So hopefully I can shoot more this AWA but from the looks of it right now, I'll probably be spending quite a bit of time chilling with friends again, which isn't bad thing since I haven't gotten much time to relax for a while now. If you're going to AWA, be sure to say hi to me if you see me!(I'm distracted easily so I do apologize if I didn't see you first lol)
= VIDEO TEASER =
Well I usually don't like to tease people too much.. ..who am I kidding? Teasing people with photos can be pretty fun right? lol j/k. Well I'm notifying everyone that I'll be releasing a small video teaser to one of my recent shoots; it's not some major shoot so don't expect anything fancy, I just had the idea of recording some video footage since the setting's pretty awesome (and not to mention a bit rare) It should be released sometime this week (the week of Sept 12th) on both my personal fb and my Photography facebook page (www.facebook.com/BennyLeePhoto…
) Here's a clue to the teaser: "Would you kindly" stay tuned for it?
= UPDATE: VIDEO TEASER IS UP! (Sept 18) =
Had a tiny bit delay but here it is! The teaser to my BIOSHOCK photoshoot
) If you've played the BIOSHOCK before, you probably would've gotten the hint earlier I guess
Well I'm still a bit stoked with the DD I got because I didn't think I would get it, but man did I feel like Christmas came early that morning lol; so here it is again. (Once again, thanks for again all your support! It's what keeps me doing what I enjoy doing and I hope not to disappoint everyone in the future
= DAILY DEVIATION =
Just want to give a special shoutout to these people
Since I got a DD for this shot with Chryss; It was quite awesome and unexpected
