    I finally have my Dragon*Con 2008 Costume Gallery up and ready to share;



    (click on the banner to visit the galleries)


    I have only begun to caption images for this event. If you would like to know more about a particular image, or have some detail about a posted image to share, then I would love to hear from you.

    Be well,
    Thomas

    Glad to see one so organized and nicely put together. Many DCon galleries end up a confusing mess.

    I thought you might approve.


    Many convention galleries are created by uploading raw images directly from the camera to an online photo hosting service. The process can be completed in a sitting, and the user can then elect to add captions and rotate images. Stunningly convenient.

    I prefer to cull, colour-correct, SFX, crop, and watermark my images first. Then create banners and navigation graphics before placing it all into individual html pages. It is terribly archaic and slow. And yet I keep doing it that way.

    When I go about captioning images, I learn a lot more about the costumers and the work done. Each image becomes the potential for a story.

    Be well,
    Thomas

    Thanks for sharing the pictures Thomas - Nice to see some familiar faces and all those great costumes! Since I didn't get to go to DC 08 - I have to attend "virtually" And yes, IMHO it's worth the effort to do all that work to make them look better too! Great job!
