    We don't usually go to these, but yesterday decided to take a chance. It was fun.. in a weird kind of way ;)

    Most photos taken with 18-105 except the horned guy with Pentax 50/1.7.

    (BTW, do they look too dark ? I was struggling with finding just the right amount of exposure)

    They look well exposed to me, Amamba. And well shot. But... my first reaction to them is: dear God, do they still do those things? :laugh1:

    I hear you :) Being there had a rather "Reno 911!" feel to it.

    There's was a TON of very picturesque - for the lack of a better word - people, but I felt weird pointing the camera at strangers, especially since so many were rather scantily clad in leather lace and covered with tattoos. But fun it was. This was my second time in 7 years, and the first time I had a massive headache and couldn't pay much attention to people and things ;)

    When I went to one down here, I found an enthusiastic smile and request for a shot got you an eager-to-pose participant.

    Well, I'd feel weird asking random half-naked young women dressed in Red Sonya-like costumes to pose for me a foot away from my wife and kids :)

    Maybe the half-naked young women are the reason the knights in shining armor show up. :biggrin:

    But I can see how that would be... awkward.

    It's been a while since I have been. I enjoy it when I go, but I usually space it out every five years or so.

    Thanks ! I don't think we'll come there again any time soon, so it was a good (if weird) experience.
