I was determined to get all of the pictures from Tokyo in Tulsa 2014: Worlds|Collide: The Undead vs. Mecha uploaded to the Website before this year’s Tokyo in Tulsa, and with just a little over two weeks to go, I finally completed the project.
All of the pictures from July 13, 2014 have been uploaded and are available in the Image Gallery.
In the process of editing the names for the pictures, I also corrected all of the pictures that I named incorrectly (for example, tagging the year as 2015 instead of 2014).
Besides getting all of the pictures uploaded to Christopher Eastman.com, the reason I embarked on this massive editing and upload journey is due to the fact that after looking at the bulk of the pictures almost a year later, I felt ashamed of myself that I did not do any kind of editing to the pictures to improve the quality. Granted, I did not officially start using tools such as Adobe Camera Raw and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom until Wizard World Tulsa Comic Con (those pictures will be uploaded to the Website before this year’s convention, and all of them were edited last year), but ever since I finally started shooting in RAW format last year, I should have edited the pictures each night when I got home so they could be at their very best quality that I could get them in with the equipment I had available. Furthermore, while I have been taking pictures at anime conventions for years, I was mostly focused on taking as many pictures of my friends and fellow con goers without worrying too much about quality (at the time and to this day, I never considered myself a serious photographer). However, after my baby niece was born, I decided to strive to take better pictures and grow as a photographer so I could, ultimately, take better pictures of her.
All and all, to those that I took pictures of last year, I truly apologize that I did not edit the pictures to the best of my ability.
The original edited pictures in their full resolution are available (the pictures on the Website are at a lower resolution so I can get them uploaded to the Website in one batch without NextGEN Gallery choking), and if anyone is interested in them, please feel free to E-Mail me with your request.
See You Space Cowboy…
