Some serious rain made for a Halloween that wasn’t so great for taking photos of costumes (although I’ll make up for that at a party tomorrow night) but at the gathering I was at this evening, there was a cool photo op of one of the kids playing with an LED Hyperion Hoop.

It’s been awhile since taking a photo of the inside of my gaming PC. And I’ve never done it with the Fuji X100s. So it seemed like a good thing to do!

This is a great birthday hat. I ought to start wearing a hat like this when it’s my birthday, too ;-)

This is what happens when you let your camera take a selfie. (At least I did a horizontal flip so the text isn’t backwards ;-)

My friend, Robin, made her own Black Cat (the comic book character) costume that she’ll be wearing at a convention next weekend. But first, she wanted to do a photoshoot with it!

Canon 6D with EF 24-105mm f/4L IS Lens| ISO 100 | 65mm | f/4.0 | 1/160 sec | Lit with AlienBees B400 flash units. Main at camera left through umbrella at 1/8 power. Second overhead behind subject at 1/16.

Can you guess the movie that Lauren and her daughter, Tiffany’s, costumes are from? That’s right, it’s the 1986 Jim Henson classic: Labyrinth. Only this time, instead of David Bowie’s Goblin King, Lauren is more of a Goblin Queen. Great costumes and a fun shoot, even if Tiffany isn’t quite so great at following direction ;-)

Bonus photo below!

I’ve got to return my friend’s EF100mm f/2.8L Macro Lens tomorrow, so I wanted to get in one last shot with it for today. Decided that I just had to use it to get a nice, close look at the lens on my Fuji X100S camera. Don’t you just love that detail?
