Youmacon 2013 Photo Op Prints, Digital Copies and More

Steam Powered GiraffeWe’re back from Youmacon 2013 and (sort of) rested. That means it’s time to get some things handled. First off, we’d like to say a big thank you to all the fans who came by to chat, buy prints or photo ops, or say all those really nice things about our photos. We appreciate each one of you. A very special thank you also to Youmacon for being hospitable and nice, with extra love to Britney for all she did and Rory for line managing during the photo ops. And finally, thank you to Steam Powered Giraffe for inviting us on the wild ride. And not getting sick of seeing our camera all weekend.

We’re going to be posting a lot of photos from the concert and panels so keep an eye on our social streams (all those buttons at the top of the page).

Beth and the Walter Girls

Now on to the business. Some of you didn’t get a chance to come by and pick up your photo op prints. How will you get them? We’re going to mail them to you! That means we need you to contact us and let us know your name/address and what you look like in your photo. There will be a small charge to offset the cost of mailing. We’ll send an invoice once you send your info. We’ll also send your digital copies since we’ll already know which ones are yours.

Speaking of those digital copies. Did you request yours yet? If you haven’t, or if you lost the ticket with our email, send us a message using the contact form. Please include a short description of your clothes, make-up, and/or pose that will help us track it down. If you have our email you can attach a snapshot of your print instead of a description. Also include which ops you have and how many.

Getting the Right Shot


Galactus and the Silver Surfer
You know “The Zone”? That ethereal feeling or place in your brain where everything lines up and clicks or works perfectly? For me The Zone never really hits all at once. Sometimes it comes when I’m shooting something and really feel like I nail what I’m trying to capture. But honestly, I’m usually too worried about settings, the subject, the people around me, etc. Sometimes it hits when I’m editing a photo. But sometimes The Zone starts at the time of capture but doesn’t come full circle until I’ve edited the photo.

This is the case with the photo above. I took it on Sunday of Comic-Con this year. I’d captured the same statue the previous year but was upset that I didn’t even notice the Silver Surfer until after the con. When I saw it was back at the Sideshow booth I knew I’d be capturing it again.

I felt really good while taking this photo, as well the other 10 or so shots I took of the same composition. That’s usually when The Zone hits, when I’m trying to get what I see in my mind captured in camera. I was shooting with a 100mm Macro lens at f2.8, which gave me a pretty shallow depth of field. I took so many shots because I needed to get Galactus’ face and Silver Surfer in the same plane so they would both be in focus. For the few minutes I was taking a shot, looking at the LCD, adjusting, taking another shot, and so on, I was having a blast. I had to worry about people walking around me and sometimes through the shot. I had to deal with people in the background. There was a lot going on but all that mattered was getting the shot the way I wanted. 

It paid off. 

When I got home and downloaded the thousands of photos from the weekend, this was one of the first ones I looked at to see how it came out. I was very happy. And then, when I finally had some time to edit the photo 2 months later, it was like being there capturing the photo again. The Zone had come full circle. 

Just for fun, here are a couple other shots I took of Galactus and Silver Surfer. If it’s not obvious, this is my favorite of all the statues I shot that day.
