As you can see by my photos, connichi went well
I even got the replacement 12-24mm lens on friday morning before I left for the convention <3
Connichi was very stressful for me, mainly because of my bad time management.
I'll try to go a little more easy on things in the future. Being stressed out was really bad for the overall quality of my photos.
WCS was not bad. The overall quality of the skits was quite high (with some exceptions of course).
In my opinion the first place was highly deserved, second not so much, third was good but with some flaws.
Congratulations to the winners again (*Calssara
), I wish you the best of luck in Japan!
Convention season is not officially over yet, there are still the Bookfair in Frankfurt, the Animaco in Berlin and the TiCon in Würzburg. I won't be going to Frankfurt though, last year was my first time there and I really didn't enjoy it at all. Bad Location, unfriendly staff and so on. There is also a rumor going on that they'll prohibit _all_ photography this year, so only one more reason for me not to got.
By the way, for those who only heard the rumors: I can confirm them. *ChristophGerlach
wrote an email to the people responsible and their answer was pretty clear: no photography allowed whatsoever.
Our only hope would be that the photography ban was always there and simply wasn't and won't be enforced in the future.
(EDIT: Seems the problem has been solved. Quote from someone on Animexx:
"Ich hab heute morgen noch den versprochenen Rückruf von Frau Grün erhalten.
Es ist wie es immer war: Auf den Freiflächen und bei allen Cosplay-Veranstaltungen darf selbstverständlich fotografiert werden. Innerhalb der Hallen ist es nicht erwünscht, aber sie meinte "Cosplayer dürfen natürlich Fotos von sich machen lassen".
Die Info kam jetzt von der Veranstalterin, mit der hat sie heute morgen telefoniert.")
Concerning Animaco, I'll probably only be able to be there until saturday early evening.
Better than nothing I guess.
I'm still unsure if I can go to TiCon, I really want to, but since I started a new university study I'm not sure about if I have the time to go :
I think that's all for now.
P.S.: The fifth part of my tutorial will have to wait for a while since the editing on my photos is pretty minimalistic and I don't want to upload a tutorial with maybe 5 lines of text.
So I'm gathering information, but that takes a while because I have to try it out myself before trying to teach it to someone. I'm really sorry and hope you'll understand.
