Ozine Fest 2015
Incidentally, the management explicitly forbid (among other things) photographers from setting up mini-studios. As such, the overall output from the photographers of this event was a tad bit less impressive than usual.
It's hard to expect the management to respect convention attendees. (-_-)
<photography jargon>The current lighting setup (off-camera main light, on-camera fill flash) is yielding significantly better results than last year's single-light setup. However, all this equipment comes at the price of weight. 8 kilograms might not seem much, but the weight and the torque can significantly reduce the steadiness of the hands after a several hours.
Also, the failure rate for my 2 flash units and radio triggers was unusually high for this event (approx. 1 out of 8 shots). I often had to apologize to the cosplayers and excuse myself to figure out if the problem lay with the batteries or the electronic contacts. I hope that the problem could be eliminated by switching to a new system wherein the radio trigger is built into the flash unit.
