"How long have you been shooting?"
"Almost 3 years."
"Well, I've been shooting for 4 years, so I guess that makes me your sempai."
Had an urge to bring up the notice me sempai meme, but the scene was already awkward enough with her outfit and my low shooting angle.
Incidentally, that makes at least 2 cosplayers in the group/AishiteruAnimegroup who also happen to be photographers. The first was Tristan (events); the second was Leslie (portraits).
Yesterday, I finally got a copy of P̶ ̶f̶o̶r̶ ̶P̶u̶n̶y̶e̶t̶a̶ V for Vendetta (Php1,050 at Fully Booked vs. Php1,700-1,800 at conventions).
Killed some time at Quiapo while the camera technicians fixed my external flash unit. 1.5 hours is a bit of a wait, but it's a hell of a lot more convenient than the alternative (i.e. have the official local distributor send the unit to Japan to be serviced by the manufacturer).
