Dark Ones August Party 2019 – The Devil Made Me Do It

This gallery contains 1 photo.

When people move on to the afterlife, you can find them in the Underworld. Cerberus at the gate, Charon drives the boat … and the River Styx and more running thru it all. This August we find ourselves visiting the Greek Underworld. Come with us as we rub elbows with the fallen peoples of the […]

Focus on what’s important…

Sometimes I will struggle for months to learn a skill in Photoshop. Often I will learn it and then not have a need to use my hard w0n knowledge for months and months…to the point that I sometimes forget that I ever knew it and I go back to the beginning of the learning curve. Then there are times when I remember bits and pieces and then it all comes back!

Today is one of those times.  All of this just to say: I did a thing!

Chalina & Kelly: Best Friends who have Just Met!

FYI: I am still working on the FanFusion pics as an event. I am getting closer to being done every day!  As of this moment I have only posted 3 images to Flickr, just to have an album ready when I am done editing. Here’s the link: https://www.flickr.com/photos/keyholeprod/albums/72157708865917997 if you so choose…

While wondering the hallways of Phoenix Fan Fusion 2019, I happened upon these two beautiful ladies having a rather excitedly animated discussion in front of the windows. As it happens, I needed to rearrange my gear and decided to use the table they were standing next to. Please understand, I did not INTEND to eves-drop on their conversation. But I could not help but to pick up on this very intense, very Positive Energy they were both generating while they spoke. Intoxicating.

While I was finishing messing with my camera gear, naturally I asked if I could get a few photos. You know…like ya do… They agreed and as we were shooting I asked how long they’ve been friends. About 5 minutes Chalina told me. Kelly added that they had just met as they were leaving a panel, and somehow wound up talking like best friends! That’s when I showed up!

This year’s post of my first visit to AZRF is a little different. I’ve broken out a few select images into their own sets on Flickr. These images are not contained in the “Main” set so you need to view the subsets in order to see all of the images.

I’ve provided links to all the sets right here. As well as a few teaser images selected at random just to whet your whistle!

As promised, here are the links to the Main set & Sub-Sets on Flickr
The Main Set: There are 241 images here. Please take your time while viewing and feel free to leave some comments!

Patrice Ruane – The Spinet Girl: Patrice is always my first stop when I visit the AZRF. Take some time to view my images of her over the years!

Gwendolyn Show: I have a confession: I have always been intrigued by Gwendolyn whenever I have seen here during previous visits to AZRF, but never had the opportunity to talk to her. This year I saw here standing at the stone bridge, holding up her “Advice” sign and I got a few candids and approached to show her. And then, something great happened…we started chatting and the conversation was just so…natural. She is a very fun person to talk to!  It was just a few minutes until her next show at the Royal Pavillion, so I decided to take some more pics of her performance. I’m so glad I did! And now I share them with you! 

Alina Masquerade: Alina is a local Cosplayer who was visiting AZRF as a Pirate Wench. at the end of Gwendolyn’s performing at the Royal Pavillion she and her photographer came in to shoot a few photos. But the next event in the Pavilion was starting and we all had to leave.
I asked if I could shoot with her, and we wound up in the Green Grass field where folks were gathering for the Fire Whip show. It was a challenge in such bright direct sunlight, but Alina made it work.

Street Juggler: The last subset is just a fun little animation of a street juggler and the photos I used to create it.

 

* As always, if you were kind enough to pose for my camera and would like copies of those images to share and use in your social media, please contact me. Include your name, the file name/s of the images you would like, and your preferred email address and I’ll Dropbox the images for you. 🙂

Devan Rodgers Hair Toss – Junkyard

Devan Rodgers’ next animation is the “Hair Toss”. Unlike the Hair Flip…the Hair Toss doesn’t require the model to get dizzy.
Once again, this was shot at “Sasserfraz Pictures – Home Of “The Junkyard Shoot out”

Nikki Goode at the Junkyard: Hair Flip – Censored

I actually think I am getting a bit better at creating these animations. But I’m not the best one to judge. You tell Me

Model: Nikki Goode.
