    • It's finally time to deliver the photos

      3 years ago

      DarkBowler Photographer

      I'm in the final stages of getting all of my photos ready for delivery to RT from RTX this year. It has been 3 months of work and over 180 hours of editing and sorting the more than 12,000 photos and the 3 hours of video (Yes, I kept track). I still have to post a bunch but I am about ready to finally pack up some huge zip files and sent them to RT. This is going to be a long evening of work on my side and making sure my website can do all the compressing. This is going to be rough but I will be glad when this is finally done. Don't get me wrong is not that I don't love taking photos for RT because I do, but I took way to many this time and I had way to much work to do after the fact that has put me behind on other work. I learned a lot this year and I hope I get to do it again next year. Next time with a few thousand less photos to work through.

    • So long story short...(PAX Flight home)

      DarkBowler Photographer

      My flight home has not gone according to plan so as a result I will take the red eye tonight and go right in to the office after 13hs (with time change) of travel tomorrow. It's going to be a long night/ wednesday...... DAMN IT smiley2.gif

    • PAX Flight Time

      3 years ago

      DarkBowler Photographer

      So I am heading to the airport in little over 2 hours to start my trek out to Seattle for my first PAX Prime. I am praying this one goes smoothly however based on every convention trip I have taken this summer (all 3 of them) I have a feeling something will happen at the airport. So any prayers/good vibes/ voo doo magic you can send my way would be appreciated. If I can get through the evening with out too much hassle it will be amazing, especially I will be landing in Seattle at just after midnight (which is 4am by my body time). Either way you will hear about it in either elation of aggravation on twitter hope you enjoy the comedy that will probably ensue.

      Safe Travels to everyone else heading out.

      P.S. Thank you to @SailorTweek and @SirNarvy for being awesome and letting me crash at their house tonight and of course @OboeCrazy for picking up what will be a very tired Connor from the airport.

    • RTX Sunday Photos Part 1

      3 years ago

      DarkBowler Photographer

      So I know I have been a little lax on posting more photos from RTX and I am sorry about that but I do need sleep and there are only so many hours in a day. So what I have done is I have uploaded a bunch of my completed photos from Sunday for your enjoyment. Enjoy

    • In case you haven't heard LoZeldathon

      3 years ago

      DarkBowler Photographer

      So today is the day of @Ilan 's stream to help @LoZelda with her medical bills to fight the horrible cancer. To see more details please check out Ilan's journal

      I'm not sure how much of the stream I will be able to watch but here is what I am doing to help. Throughout the LoZeldathon Ilan will be giving away prizes to people who donate so I have decided to give some prizes as well. I am donating 3 8x10 pictures from RTX to 3 people who donate during the stream to be given away by Ilan. These people will be able to go to my website Connor MacRae Media select a photo and I will send it to them free of charge.

      Here is another way you can help and get a little something in return. During the stream you can go to my website and purchase a photo from RTX and all the proceeds from all the photos purchased will go to Jenn. That way you get a cool photo and help out one of the family at the same time.

      Please help and donate anything that you can, every little bit will help. We are a family and one of our own needs are help even if it is just your prayers/good vibes/happy thoughts.

      -Connor

      P.S. While I am at it I am releasing another album from RTX. This time the
      RTX Costume Contest

    • Hey RTX Guardians (Part 1 of ....?)

      3 years ago

      DarkBowler Photographer

      So you remember how I may or may not have taken a lot of photos at RTX and before the convention itself.....well I am going to be posting a bunch of those to my website overnight so when you get up tomorrow you can see a bunch of new photos in the Guardians Only album on my website. Sorry for the long tease but I am still working on editing a few more before I start the long upload.

      Have a good one.

      -Connor

      P.S. Here is something to hold you over.

    • A Quick Tip on Photo Processing

      3 years ago

      DarkBowler Photographer

      When you are trying to render 1200 photos at one time even the strongest computer will have some trouble.

      Yes, I am rendering the next batch of photos from RTX 2014. I'll post more about this later.

    • So I just had a great idea (RTX Photos)

      3 years ago

      DarkBowler Photographer

      So while I was driving back I was thinking about how I would love to see everyone else's photos from RTX but that would require me to hunt them all down and somewhat make it difficult to find them all. I could look at the media section of the RTX site but there have been issues there of late and many people can't upload to it including myself and a bunch of other photographers . Not to mention the 2mb upload limit makes it hard for people who shot with DSLR's unless we save at a much lower res. So I was thinking I could use my website so people can post their photos there since I have the space and no upload limit.

      Here are the rules as well as some notes.
      smiley9.gif Any photos you upload you will still own the rights
      smiley9.gif Purchases are disabled so I will make NO MONEY from your work.
      smiley9.gif I will not give out your work with out your permission.
      smiley9.gif All photos uploaded will be allowed to be viewed in their full format and able to be saved
      smiley9.gif Personal watermarks are OK, I will not add my own
      smiley9.gif Don't upload NSFW photos (seriously please don't, just RTX stuff please.

      If you would like to put your photos there Click here to upload to RTX Community Photos
      If you would like to view the photos View Community Photos

      TL:DL
      If you have photos you want to share click the link above to upload to my website and you can see many RTX photos

      Thanks
      -Connor

      P.S. I am still working on Saturday's photos, hopefully sometime next week I can upload a bunch.
