Cosplay at FrostCon

I took my youngest daughter Annie to FrostCon, which was a small largely Anime-themed one-day event that was happening at the St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts. Small, a bit crowded at times and the presentations were a little bit haphazard, but everybody clearly had fun while there. I was also by a decade (maybe two?) the oldest person I saw there. 😉

Came away with some fun shots though.

First, my two daughters:

Full Moon Overhead

Full Moon (Shot Using "Bigma" 500mm Lens)

Full Moon (Shot Using “Bigma” 500mm Lens)

For once we had clear skies, and when I looked outside a full moon was directly overhead. Grabbed my “Bigma” lens (a 500mm Sigma with a four/thirds mount) and went outside. I played around with aperture settings and with focus, and out of about 40+ shots this was the one that was the most crisp. Some contrast added using PhotoShop Lightroom in order to bring out more detail.

A Pair of Overwintering Mute Swans

The following was shot using by “Bigma” lens set to about 450mm, as this pair of swan maybe 10 meters from the shoreline (and keeping a wary eye on my dog, who was along for the walk down by the beach).
