Manifest 2008 – Photo teaser!
After much preparation and last minute negotiations, I was able to shoot professionally at the Melbourne Anime Festival (Manifest) this year! I spent Saturday and Sunday taking photos in my studio, with the exception of two hours on each day covering the cosplay competition. It was very hard work, and I came down with a horrendous cold Saturday night, but I had a lot of fun doing it!
The studio was a big professional success, and I have many ideas for when I return next year, so that I can shoot even more people. Below is a sample of eight photos, some of my favourites from the weekend. The first four were taken in my studio, the other four were during the cosplay comp.
I plan to write up a more detailed post on each of these locations, but life is still pretty hectic right now (Naomi is coming home from hospital this week! Yay!), so I’ll get to them as soon as I can.
If you would like to see the rest of my photos from the convention, you can see them here, in my gallery:
Friday – Fruits fashion show
