Dragoncon 2018 (Part 1 of 2)

Dragoncon. A 4 day pop-culture convention where 80+ thousand people cram themselves into a 5-block radius in downtown Atlanta, Georgia.

This was my first time going and it was a euphoric, amazing experience. As a friend said, “It’s like being with 80,000 of your friends”, and he was right.

TV, Movies, costuming, molding, Space, gaming, paranormal, law, Sci-Fi, Anime, robotics, writing and a slew of other interests were represented through panels, discussions, photo shoots and more.

Hundreds of actors, actresses, artists and professionals from many walks of life were also present to teach, discuss, answer questions or gush over.

A big aspect of Dragoncon was the Cosplay. So many people dressing up in their favorite costumes that represented their favorite shows, comics and more. I especially loved the fun character mash-ups, creative and original outfits.

It was honestly the best time I can remember having.

Anyway, I tried taking a ton of photos and wanted to share a bunch here.

Disclaimer: I’m not really all that happy with the composition of my last photo or this one.

Two photos for the low, low price of FREE today. I was having too much fun playing with High Dynamic Range photographs for the very first time and this is my second attempt.

The composition on both of them just doesn’t say “Wow” to me, but I wanted to post them anyway. I’ll be able to look back and remember my first attempts at playing with HDR for the first time.

This was a rather easy photo to get as well. It was at the beginning of a much more relaxed hike at Walborn Resevoir in Stark County, Ohio.
