1/8 Suzuha Amane

I think I might have just have a new favorite figure! I got my 1/8th scale Suzuha Amane in the mail the other day, and simply couldn’t wait to do some photos with her. As luck would have it yesterday was unseasonably warm for December, making it the perfect day to do some outdoor photos!

Autumn Days : An Outdoor Figure Photo Shoot

Autumn Central Park Photoshoot

It’s that time of year when the cold weather makes its way back,  leaves start to fall, and the days get shorter. Around late October/Early November is usually when the leaves start to change color here in the northeast. While the weather has been gradually getting colder, yesterday we had some warm weather come our way which made it a great day to be outside. It also makes for the perfect time to do another outdoor figure photo shoot!

Empire State Building Light Show

Today we have a slight diversion from the usual content to look at an NYC related event. The world-famous Empire State Building put on a light show yesterday, which I figured would be a good chance to try out the video capabilities of my D5100. I was able to get a pretty good view, and with the help of a tripod I think the video turned out alright. Some info about this light show below:

On Monday Nov 26th, the Empire State Building held a light show in order to show off its new fully LED lighting system. For those who haven’t been to the big apple before, every night the top of the empire state building is lit up, on some nights different colors based on the holiday/event. On Monday the ESB ditched its old lighting system for a new fancy fully LED lighting system, which would be more eco-friendly and probably allows for a wider range of colors. To celebrate, the lights put on a short show Monday night synced to music from the American pop artist Alicia Keys. Pretty cool stuff if you ask me ^^. Good to see the power of LED technology catching on!

For those wondering I synced in the audio in Final Cut. Tried my best to sync it to the lights as the radio broadcast (one I originally recorded on the camera) was very out of sync ^^.

Was a bit cramped walking through the show, and there were queues for everything, but it was still great fun. Continue reading
